We found this attraction had the same issue allot of other attractions had in Baltimore in that it is only open limited hours/days. They offer a tour of the catacombs "occasionally."
The tour wasn't available during our visit.

I went to a wedding at this converted church it was real nice inside. The hugh pipe organ still intaked., stain glass window. If you were there by a certain time you had a short tour of the cemetery and some local history.
If I knew someone going to Baltimore I would tell them about the cemetery. I would not go there just to see the cemetery. Inner Harbor was a nice place to visit,

Most people know this is the place that Edgar Allan Poe is buried. Its also quite easy to find, and open during daytime hours - though finding the open gate is interesting! Its beautiful and is, so far, the only thing in Baltimore worth visiting for. (Aside from Utz chips!) I could spend hours in that place.

Wow! We certainly had an adventure finding this:
We asked at the hotel for directions - they thought it was in the general vicinity of to the left of the hotel. So, we walked that way and a nice Baltimorian (is that what they're called???) told us how to get here. We kept walking, and walking, and...walking! Soon, we made it. And what was there to see? A CLOSED cemetary! We were able to look inside and take pictures from the outside. This is because, luckily, Edgar Allen Poe's grave is by the gate. It was nice, but not necessarily worth the hike and the trouble and the aggravation of trying to get their and taking so much time! Hint - this might be worth it if the cemetary is open, so perhaps find out the hours before time and/or call to check and see if it is open when you are going there. Good luck! Have fun!
