“An architectural and historical journey”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Touring the temple is a journey through diverse & beautiful architectural styles interwoven with American history. If only every hour of our lives were filled with such wonders! Helpful hint: If you would like to explore the museum, arrive an hour before the time you plan to take the tour. There is A LOT to see in this one-room museum.

Absolutely worth the trip. This place is a real gem, from the outside in. If you love architecture, then this is a must see. Each room is beautiful and different.

The Egyptian Room is called the most beautiful room in the world.. also has a museum where many many items are shown including George Washington's Masoniv Apron.. I also saw a meeting notice written by Paul Revere.. the entire building is breathtaking
