Meet the Masons

The Freemasons are a mysterious bunch, and not really into their outreach programmes, but that's why the Library and Museum of Freemasonry in Covent Garden is so unusual.

The Museum is free and is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm. It houses a collection of Masonic objects including "pottery and porcelain, glassware, silver, furniture and clocks, jewels and regalia", as well as items belonging to famous and freemasons like Winston Churchill and Edward VII.

The museum is in Freemasons' Hall, at 60 Great Queen Street in Covent Garden. For more information visit http://www.freemasonry.london.museum/contact-us.php.

  1. I went to this museum not long ago and it was ful of the most wonderful, interesting and curious things. Unfortunately it did not give away any of the secrets of the Masons, the symbology was rife which made it great to go see plus the added bonus of it being free.
