Grave Location Description
Ok … this is not going to be easy.
This part of the Great Mausoleum is only open to keyholders and not the general public except on Easter Sunday (when virtually every keyholder area is open to the public). However, if you park at the entrance furthest from the main entrance on a Sunday (fewer employees) and walk in behind a keyholder through the door, then you have a shot at visiting the final resting place of Art Tatum.
