Visitors Center and Museum Shop
The Visitors Center and Museum Shop 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 too. Just follow the signs from the entrances!
Historic Oakland Cemetery boasts one of the few museum shops 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 Shop is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Weekend hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in spring, summer and fall, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the winter. The Visitors Center and Museum Shop is closed on Christmas Day.
