Currently running an exhibition detailing 300 years of freemasonry history. The exhibits are very good and it doesn't take too long to view them all (approx 45minutes). The museum curator was also very friendly and knowledgeable

Fantastic tour. Eye opener and makes you realise what good the Masons do. Second biggest giver only to national lottery. But they just do not brag about it.
