This was worth the visit. Especially if you are a Mason. The site is filled with some great Masonic gems. The view is amazing from the top.

Very interesting visit. Was the only monument in DC we visited where we were not overrun with tourists.

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

Arrived in Alexandria about 1 pm and our hotel room wasn't ready. Took the 2:15 tour of the GW Masonic National Memorial which is located at the upper end of King St.. Very interesting, nice views from the top, and a good use of time.

I did not know much about the Masons, so the tour was quite interesting and the building is impressive as well as a great view of the surrounding area,

How Appropriate that Alexandria's masonic memorial to our TRUE Commander in Chief is shaped as the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Would like to have had a guide sheet etc with facts (looked that up online at least) and really enjoyed the view from this location. Be careful driving there, several streets converge at the tip of the property. Not a good... More

This is one of Alexandria's most overlooked tourist assets. The parking is great. It's also an easy walk from the King Street Metro station. Once inside the tour of George Washington's Masonic artifacts is fascinating but the best part is the tour is the view from the top of the tower. It offers a panoramic view of Old Town, the... More

Very interesting building. Wonderful view from atop. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Lots of history, artifacts, and paintings inside. Well worth the fee.
