Nothing says family bonding like a trip to the cemetery! Seriously, though: Saturday is Family Day at Green-Wood and the Gray Lady reports it’s going to be a pretty good time.

“We think of it sometimes as an outdoor museum,” Lisa Alpert, director of development and marketing for the Green-Wood Historic Fund, told the Times, citing both the cemetery’s architecture and its famous “residents” as prime attractions. (There’s also the sheer natural loveliness of the landscape.)

On the agenda for Saturday: DIY tours of the grounds, curated by Green-Wood-designed kid-friendly “activity books” full of facts, puzzles, and scavenger hunt clues. They’ll also be offering arts and crafts all afternoon, including the probably-one-of-a-kind opportunity to design your own mausoleum.

Festivities run from noon to 4pm. Tickets are $15 per family (up to 2 adults and 4 children), and are available online or by calling (718) 210-3080. RSVPs appreciated but not required.
