The Adress listed is incorrect. The house is near Washington DC, not Fredricksburg. The Adress refferes to town hall. Please remove listing

This museum displayed a Lodge that would have been used at the turn of the 19th century. Then going on the guided tour, it depicted the different sections of Masonry as well as Ladies organizations and youth organizations. As you continued to go higher, you saw more of Washington's life in the Lodge as well as a leader. The climax... More

I was passing through on my road trip this summer and made sure I stopped here to see what was up and I'm very glad that I did. In these halls you will fine a rich masonic history anywhere from exact items from lodge meetings that George Washington attended to paintings of George Washington with masonic meanings throughout and let's...

Each floor of the museum holds interesting Masonic history. This museum gives the wife of a Master Mason more insight into what our husbands do when they attend meetings. I found this building very informative. Plan to spend at least two hours to do justice to the museum. I have been three times and each time learn something new and... More

You can see the lodge on special occasions, but if you are a Mason, come to the Fredericksburg Museum. The Masons have loaned many items for long-term viewing, including the Gilbert Stuart painting of Washington, the bible used at his induction, several chairs including a Grand Master chair, and numerous aprons and ritual items. I have visited the Lodge on... More

Very impressive memorial with historic artifacts and lovely artwork and sculpture on display. The tour is highly recommended. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and will answer questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. Fantastic view of Washington from the top level. Absent from display is any reference to the Prince Hall masons, so I would not recommend this attraction to our African-American... More

This was a huge memorial to honor the memory of George Washington as a member of the Masonic Lodge, as well as a thorough history of the Masons in the United States. The building resembled the Greek Parthenon and was nine stories tall with an observation deck on top. It looks like it must have a great view of Washington... More

The GW Masonic Museum and Mount Vernon are not Fredericksburg but located in Alexandria which is about 40 miles north. Both are worth the trip! Be sure to check the website to catch a tour at the museum and allow 1.5 -2 hours. You could easily spend half a day at Mount Vernon.

Being að freemason, this stop was a must for me. I went with my father and brother, and we took the regular tour. The museum is amazing and the tour guide was really good.
