ANC Explorer

Arlington National Cemetery's app, ANC Explorer, enables families, visitors and the public to locate gravesites and other points of interest throughout the cemetery; to view front-and-back headstone photos and points of interest; and to receive directions to these locations. The latest version also includes easy access to general information and the ability to save searched burial records to a mobile device.

Download the free app to your mobile device using the App Store or Google Play. Launch ANC Explorer here if using a traditional desktop browser. The app is also available for public use on kiosks in the Welcome Center.

Tips for Using ANC Explorer  

  • Use help screens to learn about the app's features and additional content. 

  • When searching for a gravesite, start with last name and first initial rather than filling in all fields. 

  • To receive event and emergency notifications while visiting, ensure that you enable "push notifications" and share your location.
