About the Museum of Freemasonry

An impressive library and sizeable museum housed within the main headquarters of the Freemasons in England.

Contrary to their secretive reputation, the museum is open to the public, and houses a large collection of historical objects, all linked by ties to Freemasonry.

There is also usually a temporary exhibition in another room.

Mon-Sat, if the Grand Temple is not in use there are up to tours of the rest of the building daily at 11am, 12noon, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
