this building is very close to city hall and is a design and stone work marvel. It has been sketched, painted, used as art inspiration, and more, and is located a short distance from transportation, parks, museums and so on.

For those who love architecture, this is a great place to visit. For those who don't like architecture, go someplace more exciting. I thought this building was like some cathedrals I saw in Paris!

A very interesting tour about this beautiful and historic building and freemasonry in general. The guides will answer questions about masonry and about the building as well. Had a great time.

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