George Washington Masonic Memorial
George Washington's affiliation with the Masons is remembered at this fascinating museum that features artifacts such as a Washington family Bible, the clock a doctor stopped when Washington died and a splendid Persian rug valued at over a million dollars. But the primary draw is the trip up the iconic 333-foot (101-meter) granite tower, which is modeled after an ancient lighthouse in Alexandria, Egypt. The view of the surrounding Virginia and Washington skylines rivals the more famous vistas tourists regularly enjoy from the Washington Monument and the Old Post Office . Tours begin every 45 minutes.
There are some surprising exhibits here. In this museum, you'll get the best peak into Freemasonry you're ever likely to get as well as learn about George Washington's role in it. You get a general flavor for Masonic ritual and symbolism. For a formerly secret society, this much information is a surprise.
It most definitely will strike the outsider as unusual, but it's worth the trip.
