  • Absolutely beautiful inside. A must see for any tourist and local alike. Tours are Tuesday thru Friday every hour from 11-3 with the exception of 12 noon where no tour is offered at that time
  • Very luxurious building, displaying a vast variety of architectural styles on the exterior. There are a few tours available during the week. The interior is very lavish, and the tours take you into seven meeting rooms, each decorated in a different style. There is a display of artifacts in the library, which includes George Washington's apron. Very neat place for anyone who likes architecture and interior design.
  • A fascinating building with a lot of historical significance. There are many great rooms, but my favorite is the Egyptian-themed room.
  • Do you like history? This is amazing. $10/head for a tour for anyone, Masons can tour for free (there's a donation box). Friendly tour guides and an absolute treasure of history. Even if you're not a mason, it's worth the trip, since this temple was erected when Philadelphia was hardly a wide spot in the road. There's a library which lets you read historic, old books for free, and a well stocked gift shop with books to buy. Parking is an absolute write off, plan on finding a garage somewhere and walking.
  • This lodge is beautiful. By far the most impressive lodge I have ever visited. I look forward to going again.
