This is definitely worth seeing! It's absolutely beautiful and so uniquely interesting! The audio CD is great (worth the $10.00). We only had time for the one hour audio tour before the gates closed, or we would have gotten out of the car a few times to have a closer look at some of the magnificent monuments!

Def a nice cemetery, but don't go on a sunday as the office is not open for the cd tour. Pretty to drive through.

The $10 CD tour available at the main building is great. There is lots of interesting info, it is fairly easy to follow the instructions ( we screwed it up a few times), and some good music with a strong narrator. It takes about an hour and it is worth it to see this ascetically gorgeous place.

Great stories behind the tombstones-a unique way to spend an hour in the car. Be prepared to stop and do some reversing but as a tip, get one person to navigate and the other to drive. Look for the Audio Tour Stop signs and listen to the directions. It really helped us understand the city when we went on other tours, saw street names etc.

it was very cool how you can rent a cd for 10$ from the little store there and give yourself the tour of people buried there, from your car! we grabbed some snacks for the car ride - and toured around in there for about an hour listening to all the old stories of memphis, it was very cool!! Worth checking out!
