We only had an hour here, but it was much more than we expected. The designer, builder, was responsible for changing cemeteries with tomb stones into lawn covered parks. and small plaques. Lots of good reproductions of Renaissance Italian art and buildings.Allow 2 or three hours to reflect and explore.

My girlfriend and I went up to the museum to see Vroom showcase. There were many older and newer motorcycles on display along with works of art. It was short but very pleasing. I learned a lot in a very short time.

A tranquil, interesting place to visit. Views are quite impressive and there are a lot of well known people interred there.

My family is all here in the Hollywood Hills, I have had a long standing tradition of visiting at Christmas and putting Poinsettias on each grave. I now have six deliveries every year. I am coming down from WA to do this now. It's so beautiful with the wreaths, and fully decorated trees placed on graves. The hills come alive... More

Our family has many memories of Forest Lawn. It is where my parents took us to learn to drive before they would turn us loose on the streets. We would stop and feed the ducks, enjoy the Last Supper Window, The museum and Crucifiction painting presentation. Then visit our loved ones who had passed on to heaven. They have a... More

Visited on 11/14/14 and they has a wedding, a quinceañera and the museum is hosting the most amazing antique motorcycle exhibit I've seen. You must see the trilogy! Last supper, resurrection and crucifixion paintings. This place is amazing and very welcoming. If you like art and marble sculptures, visit this place. How can you beat free museum and art.

When my grandfather died in 1946 they bought two grave sites next to one another for him and my grandmother who passed away in 1970. When my mom died we had her cremated and her ashes buried near them. Much to my surprise a few years later the grave site was occupied by someone else. Forest Lawn refused to provide... More

I have been going to the cemetary for years. I am a cemetary enthusiast and this is one of my favorites. I visit the two baby buriel spots that are heart shaped and you could see the heart shape from a higher level. There is also the statues, the stained glass window and other attractions. This is a wonderful place... More

I've only been here to attend actual graveside services, but do not think there is anything dark or macabre about visiting. It's peaceful and quiet, beautifully maintained, and has beautiful things to see.
