This is truly an amazing building where craftsmanship is at its finest. The The museum has pieces of art and craftsmanship and it that date back many years and explains the history of freemasonry and is absolutely beautiful to behold. When I go back to London I want to go back to this amazing building and take more time to read everything that was in the museum and go through it's gift shop.

Located within the Freemason's Hall, the library and museum houses a collection of Masonic material relating to the history of Freemasonry. The museum displays one of the world's largest collections of artefacts associated with Freemasonry. There is a free guided tour which is both informative and enlightening.

Had some spare time and have always been curious to decided to pay a visit. The building interior alone is worth a look if you love architecture. The Art Deco interior is beautiful. The museum has some very good pieces and is informative and educational. We spent around 45 mins but you could take a lot longer if you can spare the time. It was also free.

The Museum of Freemasonry is quite small but the contents are packed in and one could spends days there. There's a new permanent exhibition on the last 300 years and one can look into a real Masonic Lodge (if it's not being used).

It's easy to miss the souvenir shop on the way out!

I'd never heard of this place and a friend recommended to me. The museum is very interesting highlighting the history of the Freemasonry with changing displays on particular aspects. There are some quite fascinating and unusual objects on display, in particular the giant chair which is actually used in some of the meetings
