Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is one of the grandest Masonic Temples in the country and well worth a visit. Visitors can take photos, which is a nice plus.

“Historic men's club tour needs a little more zip.”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Interesting to discover what the masons and this particular facility was all about. Our guide gave us very little information other than the recorded message. The tour could have been made more interesting with some related stories about the former officers or events that happened in this marvelous structure.

“A part of Phillies history”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is a place to learn about the part of our country that isn't openly displayed. You get to find out a little bit of our history as to who where masons in our past all the way to our founding fore fathers.
