Unfortunately picked a day that an event was taking place so unable to see the Hall and listen to a guide. However the museum/library was excellent and will keep you occupied Staff at reception very helpful. Will definitely come back another day.

Not many non-Freemasons think to visit the Freemasons' Hall in Covent Garden, but they miss a huge treat. Its art-deco halls and chambers are simply stunning - the polished wood, the marble columns and floors, the splendid chambers with their superbly ornate ceilings are overwhelming...More

This is a stunning building and well worth visiting. There’s a regular free tour and a museum. The children enjoyed most of it. The museum is good. The grand temple is awesome. The guide and staff were great.

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.
