I had almost forgotten about this place until I revisited and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the chapel and its Byzantine mosaic art. I felt transported to the ethereal beauty of the heavens. I suspect this is what was desired to be evoked by the artistry and overall design. This is a rare gem not to be missed.

a beautiful cemetery, my grandmother is buried here. Love to drive through in the fall and after a snow. Calm and peaceful, not sure on if they allow biking or jogging - some frown on that.

I know it sounds weird to review this. This is not just a cemetery is park like and very majestic. Take a minute and enjoy the sanctuary, reflecting pond and lake. It's beautiful and very relaxing. It's a hidden gem.

I've been going here for many years on Memorial Day to take in the beautiful service. The grounds, chapel and Mausoleum are all so incredibly beautiful. Go any time and walk around. The view of Lake Calhoun is gorgeous.

Relatives buried here. Love the flower beds facing West 36 th and Hennepin. Its truly a gorgeous place to visit. Doesn't feel like you are in a cemetery, more like a garden with beautiful sculpture.

You can almost get lost in there, the Chapel is beautiful, with Mosaic tiles on all walls. I love the old headstones, especially the masoleum's. Also Hubert H. Humphrey is burried here. Vice President of the USA.

Beautiful example of a classic19th century cemetery situated on the East side of Lake Calhoun, an urban chain of parks and lakes in Minneapolis, Many historical graves and monuments with winding roads throughout. Initially developed during the time when families would often have Sunday picnics and outings under the sheltering trees while tending to their family plots. In the 1800s,... More

This is a beautiful place, and the Byzantine chapel at Lakewood cemetery is one of our city's hidden gems.
