We had a fun tour of the Masonic Temple -- one unbelievably elaborate room after another, fashioned after Egypt, the renaissance, corinthian, Roman. The tour was led by a Mason, very interesting.

I was invited to attend a very festive affair within the masonic building.and was amazed at the structure,the paintings and the library. Needless to say that many artifact date back to the early 1800..I am so impressed that in the near future,it is my understanding that tours of the entire building are available. That would be a highlight since I... More

My husband is a Mason so touring this building was very special to him. The workmanship of all the rooms and the history behind them is extraordinary. Our tour guide was very informative and a joy to spend time with.

I spent an hour here and took the tour; it was definitely worthwhile, both to learn about the Masons themselves and to see the seven Temple Rooms in the largest Mason Temple in the United States (and one of three this ornate in the world). Each of them was more ornate than the previous one, and contained symbols important to... More

A one of a kind gem of design and architecture in the heart of center city. Old and mysterious, really worth a visit.

This lovely place is a great piece of historic architecture, which is just outstanding and old painting, glass work and wooden craft adorning the interiors of this grand lodge are worth seeing.

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. Based on the beauty and people - my fiance and... More
