Library & Museum Of FreemasonryFreemason's Hall was built after World War One in art deco style as a tribute to all the Freemasons who lost their lives but there has been a Masonic meeting place on this Great Queen Street site since 1775. The current Hall is a very opulent building containing ornate masonic temples, each individually styled. The most prominent of these, the Grand Temple, lies in centre of the building providing a meeting place for the various Masonic Lodges including the Grand Lodge and is also used for concerts and musical events. The Library and Museum of Freemasonry is open to the public, free of charge, Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm. If you are interested in the workings of Masonic Lodges tours of the building take place Monday to Friday when the Grand Temple is not in use (there are up to five tours per day at 11am, 12noon, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm). Each tour starts in the Library and Museum. To arrange a Saturday tour contact the Freemasons' Hall on 020 7395 9251 allowing seven days notice.
