  • I went with ties to "the da Vinci Code' tour. Entry tags were on the checked bag and baggage inspection. Shop on the second floor and the Museum seems to act freely. In the library needs to be registered. To see inside the first seems necessary to participate in a guided tour of the scheduled start. OK reply has come just prior to the tour start had "reservations strongly recommend" the HP 送rimashitara email, large groups, as well as if the number of individual visitors. It is unknown whether or not is an audio guide is written ahead. Things I saw in the first half of the tour, feeling that ordinary building, Memorial Hall. Concentric elliptical at the end? In the entrance hall lined chairs. High ceilings, is the picture of the "all-seeing eye', and seems to be scarcely a Masonic thing came out! It was a feeling.

  • The building is not old (1930s) but is hugely impressive. The massive Grand Master's chair and the Temple are two of the highlights. There is an emphasis on explaining the symbolism of Freemasonry, an...  more »

  • Freemasons are a fraternity organisation and now mostly a target for conspiracy theorists. All these years I've worked in Holborn, walked past this building and never had a thought about it. It's a grand building and typical example of Art deco, especially when you go inside. Everything is designed in the classical art deco style with it's long straight lines, regular patterns to the geometric motifs. There are regular guided tours Monday to Saturdays when the Library/Museum is open. Best of all the guided tour is free. I found the guide interesting, informative and amusing. The tour I learned a lot the Freemasons, their purpose, how they're organised, their meetings. You can definitely visit the museum and library without going on the guided tour, but then you'll miss on on seeing the Grand Temple, which is unmissable. Don't miss the museum especially the gifts from other freemason organisations around the world. There's also the library where you can search for family history of Freemasonry.
  • Interesting visit over the history. Maybe lacks of more insight to live a full experience
  • Not many things in London are free but it's typical of this wonderful organisation that you can walk in look around this amazing place without spending a penny!
  • Amazing building, beautiful interiors with a lot of history. They give free tours of the building which end in the amazing grand hall. The mosaic ceiling is something to behold.
  • Relatively unknown museum. Stumbled into it. Whilst it has old artefacts there arent many pamplets/ notices that explain the displays. Try to go on a tour but prior knowledge of freemasonry is advised. Worth a visit .
