Thanks to authors like Dan Brown and others there are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about Freemasons. I thoroughly recommend a visit to the wonderful building housing the library and museum in Covent Garden. You will get the chance to hear about the history and purpose of Freemasons and ask questions of a Freemason guide.

The visit is free, you have the choice to just look round the small museum and library or take a free short tour. I recommend you take the option of the tour as this is the only way to get into the inner sanctum and hear first hand accounts of what goes on there.

A wonderful building and a very rewarding and revealing account dispelling many of the myths and containing some surprising names of high profile people throughout history who were masons. Very enjoyable and worth a visit.

Passed by this and thought I would pop in and see as the building looked interesting. There is a freemasonry museum and library.
The museum has many objects relating to the freemasonry and there looks to be quite a library.
The free guided tour of the building was very interesting - the only downside was that in the main chamber it was not always easy to hear what the guide was talking about.

This is truly an amazing building where craftsmanship is at its finest. The The museum has pieces of art and craftsmanship and it that date back many years and explains the history of freemasonry and is absolutely beautiful to behold. When I go back to London I want to go back to this amazing building and take more time to read everything that was in the museum and go through it's gift shop.

Located within the Freemason's Hall, the library and museum houses a collection of Masonic material relating to the history of Freemasonry. The museum displays one of the world's largest collections of artefacts associated with Freemasonry. There is a free guided tour which is both informative and enlightening.

Had some spare time and have always been curious to decided to pay a visit. The building interior alone is worth a look if you love architecture. The Art Deco interior is beautiful. The museum has some very good pieces and is informative and educational. We spent around 45 mins but you could take a lot longer if you can spare the time. It was also free.
