Concierge.com's insider take:
The city's best-kept secret, this ornate 19th-century temple designed to house the state's Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania hides in plain sight across from City Hall. In addition to a small collection of Masonic artifacts, and the largest collection works by American sculptor William Rush, there are seven halls that represent specific architectural styles: Corinthian, Ionic, Renaissance, Norman, Gothic, Oriental, and, of course, Egyptian.
Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 5 pm, Saturday 10 am to 12 pm.
