Such a beautiful place. I have family resting here and I visit often. Quite and peaceful. I also went here on a field trip during middle school there is definitely a lot of history here. Stop buy and check it out it's like a museum.

It may not sound like somewhere to visit, but the crucifixion and resurrection show are stunning. Paintings half the size of a football field are amazing, along with the story line. There is also a show for the Last Supper, but we arrived too late.

Hard to imagine, this cemetery is actually a visitor's attraction. It's a beautiful property on the side of the hill overlooking the San Fernando Valley. Many visitors come just to enjoy the property and the views.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful, with classical statues in almost every section. The art work are copies of famous works. In one of the buildings you can see THE LAST SUPPER made out of stained glass. This is a peaceful place to visit and inspirational...More

If you are talking about the crypts I would feel it comes under private property. While it is an enteresting attraction, a certain amount of respect, dignity and decorum should be observed. Not everyone in Forest Lawn... More
