I think this is the only place where one can see the largest paintings of Jesus' crucifixion and the last supper in a well guided presentation. In addition, an exhibition of classic motor bikes and serene gardens. Highly recommended.

We drove up on the Hill to look out over the mountains and the city, beautiful view. The stain glass window of The Last Supper is very nice to see at Forest Lawn and the Museum is nice. They also have a small gift shop. I enjoyed seeing the Song of the Angels painting and the many statues. This is... More

The Museum and the Last Supper exhibit are sites that are very unique to any cemetery. The views of the valley between Glendale and Los Angeles are worth the visit in and of themselves.

We departed from Alameda Naval Supply Depot in 1964 aboard the USS Zelima AF-49. I came back in 1966, he didn't. I often wondered to Jack. I recently discovered that he was killed in Vietnam in 1966. His parents buried him here, at Forest Lawn, Glendale. His grave is just down the slope from the statue of David. Having never... More

visited our son for his birthday and added purple and gold flowers to his vase. We will never forget. Visitors can see the many sites that display historical places in US history. Nice and peaceful day.

I went to an evening service at one of the Chapels and finding it was an adventure. A few more lights and couple signs would be a big help to the visitors driving up those hills.

We went to Forest Lawn Memorial Park just to view the two large paintings-"The Crucifixion" and "The Resurrection". The founder of Forest Lawn, Hubert Eaton, heard about it and shipped it to Los Angeles to restore and display. The Crucifixion is the largest painting. An entire building and auditorium was built just for it. Every hour, there is an audio/video... More

We have relatives buried here, but even apart from that it's worth a visit. There are large art pieces (like at many Forest Lawn Memorial Parks), but they also have a changing art exhibit in the museum, as well as on-going exhibits of many lovely bronze statues, stained glass etc. And you can't bee the views towards downtown Los Angeles...

Yup. Never thought a cemetery would be on my list of "must see" in LA, but this is an awe inspiring, and sobering place. World Class Art, Antiquities, the Rich, The Famous, beautiful panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley, History, peace and quiet, solitude, Forest Lawn has it all. It may not seem like your idea of a typical... More

While visiting the LA area with some friends who were familiar with the area, they suggested we go to Forest Lawn in Glendale. They said there are many celebrities buried there but I responded that I didn't care about seeing the graves of any of them. That's when they mentioned a small, little-known museum on the grounds. We made the... More
