You actually tour the entire building. The view from the top is very impressive. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We didn't know a thing about the masons. We sure do now. Thi took 2 hours.

We developed a real appreciation for both George Washington and his Mason affiliation thanks to the terrific tour. Without the tour I think we would have been bored just reading the exhibit information. The observation deck gave us some lovely city views and great pictures...More
