Truly an architectural wonder. The tours are relatively sparse, but worth the time to find out when they are held. You do NOT have to be a Freemason to enter and tour. The main meeting rooms (Halls) are each devoted to a era of architecture: Gothic, Corinthian, Norman. The most striking is the Egyptian Hall, so authentic and true to the original temples in Egypt that it is often studied by Archaeology students to learn architecture and hieroglyphics. There is also a museum which contains memorabilia from our founding fathers, including an original apron worn by George Washington. The temple itself is built in the style of old European cathedrals and the sweeping marble staircases upon entry give a taste of ancient grand society. If history or architecture is your thing, this is a must see.
