On Saturday June 15th and Sunday June 16th, due to the filming of a new miniseries that takes place in downtown Washington, DC, stop 16, the Newseum and National Gallery of Art and stop 17, the National Portrait Gallery and the American Art Museum will be closed all day. There will also be rolling street closures taking place throughout the downtown area. Please expect delays and reroutes throughout the weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience. These activities are beyond our control.
Sections 55 and 59, the first stop on the weekend route, show us that Arlington National Cemetery is still a very active cemetery conducting up to 30 funerals each day, Monday through Saturday. Both sections are considered active burial sections, meaning a number of funerals take place in the sections during the week.
