Detroit Masonic Temple Online Tour


If you've never had the opportunity to travel to Detroit, Michigan and visit the Detroit Masonic Temple in person, or it's been a while since you've been there, you can now take a very detailed virtual online 3-D tour of its major facilities.


Visit the website at www.themasonic.com, click on 'facilities' and prepare to be dazzled at what the Masons of Detroit created in the 1920s. After almost a century, the Detroit Temple remains one of the most significant examples of Masonic architecture anywhere in the world.

Just from a lodge room decorating point of view, consider that all of the Temple's Blue Lodge rooms in the Fraternal Tower are EXACTLY the same size and design. (In fact, if you go to the old Scottish Rite floor that was inexplicably covered from end to end in cheap hardware store paneling in the 1960s, you can see a completely unfinished lodge room and its cement block walls that shows you what all of the other lodge rooms looked like before the painters, plasterers and woodworkers got to work.)

Here's what they did with a few of them.









With over 1,000 rooms inside, be aware that they only have a handful online, and it's pitched to potential renters.
