It's a beautiful building from the outside, but unfortunately as we went on a weekend we weren't able to go in as it's closed on Sundays and Mondays. Apparently it's even better inside, but definitely worth going to see it anyway.

You will be overwhelmed by the sheer awesomeness of this building. You get a great tour and an explanation about one of the great fraternities that helped found the USA. If you are a Freemason, you should travel to Philly just to tour this building.

This is an imposing and historic building. The portraits of former Mason, along with stained glass portraits of four US presidents who were Masons (Washington, Jackson, T. Roosevelt, Truman) are interesting.

It is very difficult to find a free parking in this area. Paid parking garages are available throughout the center parts of Philadelphia though.
