Tours to entertain, educate, and enlighten the community throughout the year.
Historic Oakland Foundation offers two main types of tours: our guided overview tour and special topic tours. We also offer both guided tours for private groups and schools. If you want to tour the cemetery at your own pace, we have several options for self-guided tours.
Guided Overview Tour
Sights, Symbols, and Stories of Oakland
Saturdays, Sundays, and Select Wednesdays
Tours begin at the main gate on Oakland Avenue.
Discover the history, the period 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 stories to tell; stories filled with both stunning victories and heart-wrenching tragedies. Join one of our knowledgeable and entertaining guides for a 90-minute walking tour of the grounds.

We are Proud to Participate in the Museums for All Program
Historic Oakland Foundation is a proud participant in Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM), to encourage people of all backgrounds to visit museums regularly and build lifelong museum-going habits. Those receiving food assistance (SNAP) benefits can take one of our weekend or Wednesday guided tours free (up to four people, with the presentation of a SNAP Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card).
Museums for All is part of Historic Oakland Foundation’s broad commitment to seek, include, and welcome all audiences.
