Masonic Temple

My Dads family were Masons, so I just had to see this building. Every room was different and so very pretty. A must see attraction.

Open for directed tours this Philadelphia landmark is unrivaled. Room after room is more stunning than the last. One of my favorites was the Egyptian hall. However the portraits of Washington & Franklin both Grand Masters of the Philadelphia Lodge are interesting. And spend some extra time in the Library the rare artifacts are very telling.

This place offers a variety of many different themed temples/shrines within the building. It's quite an extensive tour but very educational.

A piece of Philadelphia history. The lodge rooms are neat, no two the same. The fun thing is to find the one flaw in each room. Still haven't

For only $13 a person you get a rich tour full of information in the most amazingly beautiful building. Convenient tour times. Must see!

This is on of the best places in Philadelpha. Each of the room is unique decorated but all of them are beautiful. Be aware of a limited access.
