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.

This was a great behind the scenes tour of a very interesting place. We had about 40 people on our tour - so don't be afraid you'll be the only one. The building has great history and you get to see 7 of the "meeting rooms." Each is done in a different elaborate architectural style. Get there early (at least... More

This place is a must see. No cost was spared in decorating and each room if more impressive than the last. You can only see it on a tour. Tour gives you a chance to learn a lot about the Masons.

Its worth going to see it. It is extremely interesting! The library contains a lot of information about the foundation of Philadelphia thru Franklin & Washington letters on display.

The dazzling styles in the room of the Temple were a higlhlight of our trip. Don't miss the Egyptian Room and the Masonic apron made by Madame Lafayette for Gen. Washington

We walked in to browse the interior we got a personal tour by one of the colleagues who had worked in the library for 23yrs and it was very interesting to say the least.
