Wow. You can tell immediately that this is a grand place. Unfortunately, it's $15/person and can only be accessed by going on a tour. Listen, I'm not cheap so don't even start in on me about the cost. I just couldn't justify it nor was I able to wait an hour for the next tour to start. Two gentlemen attending... More

We visited the Masonic Temple on request of my 17 year old son who had recently watched a program on the Masons. The temple tour was very interesting and it intrigued me since my grandfather was a Mason. Every room is different and it was well worth the tour. Even my 12 year old liked it. We spent extra time...

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and wasn't too crowded. While waiting for the tour to begin, you can see showcases full of masonic memorabilia from around the world in the library. The architecture and design of the building is amazing. The tour takes you through three floors of rooms (I think we entered eight rooms in total) with themes ranging... More

OMG! this was a great surprise and unexpected ornate extravaganza. Seven rooms, all created and detailed by master planners. I was not expecting all this overwhelming beauty. Worth the time to learn about the secret!

Me and friend were drawn by curiosity, given that famous males were members of this mystery group. Very nice architecture inside the place. Rooms with different themes and deco. Guides available. Students go in with a concession if you show your student pass.

I live in Philadelphia and so you will think I should be tired of looking at this building. No! The masonary workmanship on display in this building is breath taking. The arches, the piers, the columns, they are just a sight to behold. Standing next to the City Hall building which itself is a great building does not seem to... More

My husband and I went on the tour of the Masonic Temple. They walk you through their different rooms: each is uniquely designed based on a theme. Very grandiose architecture and detailed, ornamental designs.

It was a great tour with lots to see, it was guided but mostly audio played over speakers in each room. The guide was friendly but it did feel at times that he was just shepherding us around the 'public' areas. He was open to questions and answered many about the style of the rooms, when things were built, and... More

Very luxurious building, displaying a vast variety of architectural styles. There are a few tours available during the week. The interior is very lavish, and the tours take you into seven meeting rooms, each decorated in a different style. There is a display of artifacts in the library, which includes George Washington's apron. Very neat place for anyone who likes... More

This was one of my fave things I did in Philly. I thought $13 was a lot but I really enjoyed it. I did the 11 AM Friday tour and the guide was excellent. I learned about masons in addition to the temple. I loved how different each room is and the audio commentary was well done. Plenty of time... More
