Exhibits

While at Lakewood, you are welcome to visit two exhibits. Both are located in the lower level of the historic chapel. The chapel is open on Memorial Day. Other days, you may request access in the Administration Building (first building when you enter through the main gates).

Lakewood Memorial Chapel: 1910 to Today

Learn why many believe Lakewood’s historic chapel contains the finest example of Byzantine mosaic art in the United States. Follow the creation of the chapel through correspondence among Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones, New York interior designer Charles Lamb and Lakewood’s board members between 1908 and 1910. See photos, blueprints and more.

Lakewood History Exhibit

Located along the corridor walls between the chapel exhibit and the new cremation viewing room, the Lakewood History Exhibit reveals the different aspects of Lakewood that make it a community treasure - including its place in Minneapolis history, its artistic treasures, the cultures and groups represented here, its gardens and landscape, and changing traditions.
