Did a tour of the Temple. Nice architecture but the admission is too pricey. Tour lasts an hour and was informative. We had a nice guide.

I've lived outside of Philadelphia my whole life (30+ years) and never visited the Masonic Temple till recently. That is a big mistake - this is a beautiful building with so much history and fantastic craftsman work. The tour guides and people operating the building are so nice and thoughtful.

Naked things should not be in an area that has Christian Values or Family Values places. I took so many pictures but inside had naked statues so I deleted all the outside one.

A very old and beautiful building. You can take a tour and will be explained what the Masons are about etc. Check the schedule to see the days and hours for the tour.

Beautiful building, great tour for the price. John, the tour guide, was very informative. The rooms you get to tour are very beautiful. Wish there was more detailed information but we enjoyed the trip and information. Worth the ticket price.

Went with a coworker at lunch time and took the tour. What an amazing time and what beautiful rooms. Totally in awe. Loved it and the history with it. Would definitely recommend it. Must see if you have an hour or so extra in the city.
