I have visited the temple on multiple occasions and it never disappoints. The architecture and decorations are amazing. The lodge rooms are distinctive and beautiful. The tour guilds are well versed and happy to answer questions.

Interesting tour of this beautiful building. The themed meeting rooms really must be seen to understand the detail of this grand building. Tour takes about an hour. $15 per person, but they do offer a family rate. We were glad to have taken the time to see the interior.

We had a fun tour of the Masonic Temple -- one unbelievably elaborate room after another, fashioned after Egypt, the renaissance, corinthian, Roman. The tour was led by a Mason, very interesting.
