Tours and Self-Guided Tours

During the Chapel’s public hours, individuals and small groups are welcome to stop by to take a Main Avenue or themed tour and see our exhibits. Many visitors are looking for a specific gravesite, and we are happy to help find it. Maps of the grounds are available in print and online, and we are happy to greet and orient visitors for self-guided tours.

Our Main Avenue sidewalk tour is aside the paved driving road. We describe the cemetery’s history and some notable “residents” as we refer to our permanent guests buried at Oakwood Cemetery. This tour is approximately 45 minutes, spans about ¾ of a mile, and is suitable for individuals with mobility challenges. We also offer themed tours, some of which were originally developed by our friends group, Save Austin’s Cemeteries.

Group Tours

Group tours are by reservation so we can best accommodate your interests and needs. Email (oakwoodchapel@austintexas.gov) or call (512) 978-2310.
