Beautiful building that I was walk by multiple times a day. Can't help but to think of all the Dan Brown books I've read and you'll always catch these older white men in black suites with brief cases walking in and out and eating at the local restaurants.

I've visited Freemasons Hall many times as the museum and library are just so interesting.

The guided tour is a must for anyone interested in the history of the building and indeed, Freemasonry. The tour guides are excellent, well humoured and give an element of fun to the tour.

The museum is small, but you really would need at least a few hours to take in all the artifacts on display....more

Actually this is quite a fascinating experience and you do learn a lot. History can be taught quite straight lined so this shows you all the side views. A must visit for anyone that want to think out of the box!more

They hold regular tours of the buildings at 6pm and open the Grand Lodge, Museum and Grand...more

Walking home from the Prince Charles Cinema I found myself passing this imposing slab of a white building. It's most striking: I could describe it as the albino lovechild of a church and Battersea Power Station. Then I saw a sign with the word 'museum', and since I'm in reviewing things mode I thought 'why not?' If it's free I'll pretty much do it. And, even though I wouldn't have said...more
