Had a free guided tour by an amusing guide, then spent some time in their museum, photos allowed. You need to ring and check up what times tours are on each day as it varies.

I don't know a thing about Freemasonry! Came away educated in several ways, most notably about what the organisation does charitably, world-wide. Exhibits include the 3 century history and all sorts of interesting artefacts. The best parts are the lovely library and a tour that...More

This building is full of history. Even if you are not a free Mason you will enjoy a tour of this building.

Without having basic knowledge of Freemasony the visit will be wasted. I suggest watching a DVD: "Terra Masonica", prior to going there.

The fact that there is so much history and symbolism here, astonishing architecture and amazing tour guides. Add the fact that entrance to the museum and the tour are free, makes the Freemason’s Hall my favourite attraction in London. This was my second time visiting,...More

Having taken any number of friends on the conducted tour over the years, I can fully recommend a visit or two if just to hear the pipe organ.

Hi, I would suggest you locate your nearest Freemasons lodge in MOROCCO, call in or phone them. Then ask them if you can join them as a member. Hope this helps.
