There is so much to see. It is well worth paying for the tour and getting extra information and to get questions answered. It is a wonderful Masonic Memorial to George Washington. It is beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. There is a handicap entrance and an elevator to the various floors on the tour.
This Masonic memorial has more of George Washington's memorabilia than his former home, Mount Vernon. He left his furniture, personal mementos, etc. there were no crowds...and lots of interesting information. Not to forget a FANTASTIC view of Old Alexandria.
This is the first Masonic Temple I've ever visited. The Freemasons certainly have a taste for grandiose architecture, and this tower is no exception. Grand Mason George Washington is the focus here, as a huge sculpture of Washington towers over the colonnaded marble entrance hall. There are two types of admission. General admission is $7 and lets you see the... 更多
The exhibits in the George Washington Masonic National Memorial provide a brief overview of the civic role that Masons have played throughout the history of the United States. They also provide an understanding of the ideas, ideals, and charitable work within the Masonic organisations. At the present time, the entry cost is $7.00. The cost of entry and a tour... 更多
Don't worry if you're not a Freemason, daily tours are offered to most of the fabulous building. Why not visit and learn something about Masons, and who in the USA's history proudly call themselves a Mason. You'll enjoy this tour!
The entrance fee is inexpensive and you can pay a few extra dollars for a tour. We chose the tour and were not disappointed. The view from the top floor was amazing. You can go outside on a walkway when you are near the top. There is free parking.
Art deco, federalist, and ancient styles collide in an interesting mix. We didn't have a chance to spend a lot of time in the facilities. The best part is the viewing deck.
If you can get to the top of the monument fantastic views of the area. Supposedly the highest point between Washington DC and Richmond. Interesting history of both Alexandria, the Masons, and George Washington. Be sure to see the "Moving Parade display" in one of the show rooms.
My wife and I were taking a long walk around Alexandria, VA and decided to visit the Masonic National Memorial. This is worth a visit, it is a great building and there is a great piece of American history on the edge of Old Town Alexandria. The cost of admission is only $7 and worth it, but we will come... 更多
I was in Washington D.C. for a weekend and I asked the hotel clerk where would she send someone to visit something of historical and architectural interest. I was directed to the George Washington Masonic National Memorial and I was not disappointed. Hardly any other visitors so I could take all the time I wanted viewing the stained glass windows,... 更多
Seeing the pyramid-like structure from my hotel room across Potomac for a few days. Decided to explore. Easy access. Impressive and magnificent tribute to the founding father. The only knowledge prior to this visit about free mason is from Dan Brown's book. Quite different view after touring the memorial. There is not much secrecy about the organization although it does... 更多
