Visitors Center and Museum Store
The Visitors Center and Museum Store is located at the highest point of the cemetery, near the center, in the historic Bell Tower. Stop by to pick up a free brochure, look up burial records, or purchase a self-guided tour map. We have refreshments, too. Say hello to our shop volunteers; they can share some of the history of the cemetery and answer questions. You’ll find clean restrooms in the Visitors Center as well. Just follow the signs from the entrances!
Historic Oakland Cemetery boasts one of the few museum stores affiliated with a historic cemetery, and the carefully curated assortment of merchandise is as unique as the shop itself. The shop offers books on the cemetery, gardening, and Atlanta history; jewelry and gift items made by local artists; and other Oakland-themed gifts such as t-shirts, bookmarks, and postcards. Merchandise varies by season, so be sure to check back often!
The Visitors Center and Museum Store is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekends and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays starting May 1, 2021.
