The George Washington Masonic National Memorial is a very interesting place that is not normally very crowded. One can have a very enlightening experience there learning about the masons and some history without being crowded in and putting up with noise common to other tourist attractions. Their elevator that runs at a slant to allow for moving up a tower... More

I was unable to take the tour as I was dragging around a 6 month old and strollers were not allowed. So I missed the museum dedicated to Washington and the one to the Knights Templar. The rest of the Masonic hall, though, was fascinating. A nice museum on who the Masons are was well done. The architecture of the... More

DO NOT VISIT THIS MEMORIAL. When I entered the building on 1/15/2017 at around 3:00 PM, I was greeted by a very disrespectful woman with short brown hair working at the reception. I politely asked if I may use the restroom, as it was an emergency, and she scolded me, saying that I had to pay $15 to use it,... More

Took this tour because I was in the area a little early and needed something to do. It was a nice piece of history.

I'm a Freemason myself , and I was already fairly knowledgeable on the memorabilia here. The tour was 15$ and the young man did an excellent job on explaining everything. I made sure to give him a little extra cash at the end. They also take you to the very top of the building that overlooks a great part of... More

There is a ton of history here. They offer a guided tour at a reasonable cost. Other than the view at the top, an amazing thing is on the ground floor the elevators are about 30 feet apart on each side of the building. When you get to the top they are only 6 feet apart. There are many artifacts... More
