“Amazing architecture tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The tour was small with only about 8 people. The tour guide had a fun, dry sense of humor and was a great guide. This building is a must see for anyone interested in many types of archititecture or just old buildings. Each meeting room is done in a different style.

“Beautiful building”

This building is beautiful. Tour guides could be a little more enthusiastic, but I'm sure they were volunteers.

“Interesting tour. Architecture/interior design buffs would love.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

I'm not a free mason, nor do I know any. We ducked into the temple because it was over 100F outside and wanted a place to cool off. We ended up going on the tour which was fascinating, bizarre, beautiful and just a skosh creepy.

“Impressive”

Impressive, worth visiting, right next to cityhall, beautiful halls, nicely decorated, great guide. The tour takes about 45 min, depending on how many questions you have.
