Tips for Visiting a Pennsylvania Masonic Lodge

Advance Notice

Members are welcome to visit any lodge at any time, but use the email listed with each lodge to let the lodge secretary know you plan to visit, so the lodge can provide for the best possible experience for you. Establishing your credentials ahead of time will make your experience more pleasant.

Proving You Are Entitled to Enter

Please be aware, when visiting in Pennsylvania, you are required to have a paid-up current year’s dues card or receipt, a Travel Certificate or other proof of membership and current good standing with you. Each Grand Lodge instructs its members on how to prove their membership, so please come prepared to do so. If no member can vouch for you, the Tyler of the Lodge will arrange for a committee to meet with you in the Examining Room to verify your credentials and claims that you are a Mason.

Dress Code

We want you to feel comfortable and welcome when you are with us. We provide courtesy aprons for members and visitors, but you are most welcome to wear your traditional Masonic dress when visiting. Our preferred minimum dress code for our members would be what is considered “business dress” today — a suit, or a coat and tie, nice pants and shoes — no denim or sneakers. Lodge officers wear tails or tuxedo, white traditional-collared tux shirts and a black bow tie. We welcome visitors to our meetings. If you plan ahead, we hope you will observe our dress code, but, if you are in town on business and discover a meeting is happening and only have “business casual” clothing, we’ll still welcome you. Please come and join us for Masonic inspiration and fellowship!

Visiting the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia

Guided tours of the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia are available at the times listed here. If you are interested in attending a lodge meeting, contact our Grand Secretary’s office several weeks before you come to Philadelphia, and they will be able to tell you what nights the lodges are conducting stated (business/program) meetings, or what degrees they might be conferring. You can reach them at or by calling 215-988-1900.
