Right in the heart of Philly, close to the convention center, the Temple is beautiful and has a ton of history. Cheaper if you are a Mason. The tour was a bit rushed but enjoyable.

Walking back from Philly's Chinatown, we decide to stop in and joined a tour group. The place is huge and interesting (amazing history, with many heroes of the American Revolution having been members). Bring a camera; the visual sights are amazing!

A beautiful building with many interesting things to see inside. Everyone should visit Phila's Masonic Temple at least once. If you live here, come on down & if you're visiting , put it on your list.

There are a lot of stairs in the building but I would imagine they have elevators or lifts of some kind in the building. They still hold meetings here and a lot of the gentlemen are elderly

Google "Masonic temple Philadelphia" and then click on Admission fees. There is a range of admission fees.

It is very difficult to find a free parking in this area. Paid parking garages are available throughout the center parts of Philadelphia though.
