What a great place to find both open and free. It gives just a little insight into Freemasonry, but opens ones eyes to the scale of Freemasonry. Well worth a visit.

This was a quick visit while we had a spare half hour, fantastic ornate building, we spent most of the time in the interesting museum, but will visit again when we have more time to really do it justice

Came here for Open House. A stunning building. The main hall was particularly spectacular with its 1700 seats. My favourite though was the giant chair in the museum. They do tours most days.

My partner and I went here on the Open House Day. It's absolutely breathtaking and we cannot recommend it highly enough. There is a little museum inside of it as well. The decorations are spectacular!

I am afraid that I cannot be as detailed as the other two responders; but I can confirm that the Hall and the Museum are well worth a visit. Lodge meetings are, of course, closed to non-Masons but there is far more in the... More
