The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania

An hour-long guided tour takes you through many rooms in the Philadelphia Masonic Temple, each with its own architectural style, each more garish than the last. Our guide implied that there have been Mason secrets in the past, but assured us that they're not a secret society anymore. The craftsmanship of the entire building is impeccable. Of course it is! It was built by Masons!
