Discover the history, the Victorian gardens, and the art and architecture that give Oakland its distinctive character. Oakland is an outdoor museum of Atlanta’s history with over 70,000 residents. Meet the trailblazers, builders, creators, and characters who call Oakland home.

Join one of our knowledgeable and entertaining guides on weekends at 10 a.m. for a 90-minute walking tour through Atlanta’s past and present. Wednesday tours are also available.

Spaces are extremely limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance. Masks are required. Tour groups are capped at 10 people to allow for social distancing on tours.
