“Masonic Temple is wonderful”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

It is a must see if you come to Philadelphia. Need to register for a tour. This place cost A LOT of money when it was built and one room is better than the next - Egyptian room is fab.

“A must see place for fellow travelers”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Brethren, stop by and visit the Pennsylvania Masonic Temple and take the tour. It is worth it. Come and see paintings of George Washington and Ben Franklin in their Masonic gear.

“Would love to go back to see the inside of this”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

Even though I only got to see the outside of the temple and the lobby, I would love to go back to Philly if for nothing else but to go inside this. It is beautiful. We went to Philly for the Winter Classic and the Alumni games and because of the timing of the events, we were unable to make it here during their hours of operation. We went during the day and again ran back by at night (which I totally recommend because the light on the columns in the entryway are amazing!!!).

“Fantastic building!”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Really a unique place. Across the street from City Hall, often overlooked, but outside alone is worth the visit. Not a Mason myself but you cant pass this one.
