“Where George Washington was a Lodge Member”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The historical artifacts, the view from the observation deck, and the exhibit of the phases of Washington's life. Also try to figure out how the elevatores go "straight" up for 9 stories when they have a 7.5 degree inward tilt

“Beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Opposite the Metro although large free car park. Took the tour as that gave us access to the top viewing platform with wonderful 360degree views. Interesting even for non masons and beautiful rooms. Worth a visit if you're in the area

“Worth the trip over the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I love this Memorial. I think it is better than the Washington Monument. The view is from on top is amazing. The exhibits are interesting. Even though it isn't free, it is still worthwhile to visit.
