What a fantastic way to learn all about George Washington as a Mason, plantation owner, soldier, and President. Very interesting facts, articles, and stories about Washington that were not common knowledge for many. Gorgeous architectural monument with amazing artifacts dating vaca to the 1700's and later. Great tour and trip to take!

The George Washington Masonic National Memorial was a great way to spend a morning. Getting to go up into the various floors within the tower was incredibly interesting as each stop we made on the guided tour took us through different pieces of an altogether fascinating story. Masonic history, George Washington's connections with the Mason's, what modern Masonry is, and... More

This was fantastic. It is beautiful; large and well worth the admission price if you are a Mason, thinking of joining the Masons or had Masons in your family. Want to learn about Masonry, this is good for that too. Lot's of history and lot's to look at. The view from the 8th floor is fantastic.

It took a couple years, but we finally traveled the eight or so blocks to the George Washington Masonic National Memorial from our condo and ended up spending three hours touring the Memorial. Highly recommend if you're a fan of George Washington as they have some very unique memorabilia in the Museum. Take the tour, but study up as there... More

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.
