This place has a world famous reputation. The men building it and keeping it alive are the reason it is great. Enjoyed talking with the Grand Secretary and purchased his book. Looking forward to going back.

As a teacher I took school trips here every year. Even middle school students were captivated by the history, beauty and architecture of this structure. Seems like every time I visited I learned something new. Try not to get wrapped up in conspiracy thinking and just enjoy the love it took to build this showcase.

This is a most remarkable place to visit. Hard to believe there is such architecture, beauty, art and majesty in Guthrie, Oklahoma, no less. Wonderful place to visit. Call ahead, as tours are limited to certain hours. Very worth the time!

You can feel the conspiracy theories oozing from the grounds.... Very cool architecture, but no visiting hours?

The tour was quite interesting. The building dates from the 1920s and is breathtakingly beautiful. A real jewel hidden away in a small relatively unknown historic town. There are only two tours per day one with the morning and one mid afternoon. However one can find many things to do and see in Guthrie.

As a retired businessman, former engineer and general construction master journeyman, I have a special way of looking at the displays in this amazing building. Many of the trade crafts and arts on display are now lost. It had been awhile since I was there but there were then and I am sure now, rooms in which the architecture, crafts... More

My wife and I were traveling near Guthrie and decided to stop by the Scottish Rite Masonic Temple. I remember seeing the building from downtown Guthrie when I was in Job Corp around 30 years ago, but I never check it out. The building was originally constructed to serve as Oklahoma’s capitol, and was built in 1919. There are tours... More

Even if you are not a Mason this building is a MUST do if you are in the area. Built in 1921 by architect Catherine Davidson, this 300,000 sq ft palace is an amazing depiction of Greek, Italian, English, and Phoenician architecture designs. Our tour guide Bob Broadway was terrific and took us on a 2 hour journey packed with... More

Absolutely beautiful temple, the largest masonic temple in the United States. Very interesting temple and the tour guide, also a mason, did a good job in answering the questions that he could. You can see alot of different signs just like in the National Treasurer movie except for the treasure. Definitely worth the trip if in the Oklahoma City area.
