It had lots of interesting tombs and if you needed the information of each one that was marked, a guide at the entrance gives out folders and you just have to read them.

For anyone who likes visiting old graveyards you'll have a good time here. There are several famous people buried here. It's also right in the center of Boston so you can just drop by during the day and then head off to another adventure.

I don't mind gravesites, my friend loves them, and the others in my group were a bit blah, but this was a pretty cool one!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

What time of day do they allow visitors to walk through the graveyard? We walked by this morning around 10:30 and the gates were closed.

I'm not actually sure either but I'm sure if you go to a visitor center, they can tell you. I saw this a little late, so you've probably already figured it out. I'm so sorry.
