Make sure you join the guided tour since you will not be allowed to see some of the rooms on your own if you just go inside. The rooms in there are very well decorated in different styles (Renaissance; Egyptian; Greek...to name a few). You also get to listen to some pre-recording in each room that briefly talks about that particular room and you can also ask questions about anything related to the organization.

The architecural aspect was really good. The library had some interesting artifacts. Wish there was more information about the Masonic organization so I could I could understand better what I was seeing.

Masonic Temple is a hidden gem in Philadelphia. If you are a local, I would highly recommend checking it out. It would be a fun thing to visit with out of town visitors.
