Very beautiful and somewhat intersting, longest walk to get there for us for sure since we were staying very close the Independence Hall. Most expensive tour we took.

The Masonic Temple is indeed the greatest Masonic building in the world. There are seven Lodge rooms, each elaborately decorated in a different style. The Egyptian Hall is most impressive, and even archeology students from the University of Pennsylvania come to study it's beauty. There is an admission charge of $ 15.00 and there are only three tour a day,... More

An incredible building. A docent that was able to explain and interest adults and the 13 year old boys that accompanied us. A very interesting informative, eye candy tour.

We stood and admired the architecture of this building for quite some time. Walk around it to get different perspectives. It is best from across the street. Well worth a few pics!

Really enjoyed it, every room has it's own unique flavor, some intimate, some palatial, but all interesting with their own unique story.

This was my must see when in Philly. And I was not disappointed. The tour flowed throughout the building guided by a very friendly Host. We visited each room and were enlightened as to the architecture and some of the symbolism in the rooms. The highlight of the visit was finding the banner of The Grand Lodge of Ireland in... More

This is a great rainy day tour. There is quite a bit of history and grandeur in this place. They have George Washington's Masonic apron on display.

My husband is a huge fan of the Masons and all the lore surrounding them so he really wanted to see the temple. You can only see the building through a "guided" tour and they only run Tuesday-Saturday at certain times so make sure to check the website. It is expensive $15 a person however if you are a bigger... More
