The masonic temple in Philadelphia is one of the most impressive historical buildings to visit on the east coast. The interior is gorgeous and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The temple is well worth a visit when in Philadelphia

No time to see everything, go here and read the history of the Temple. Right in the middle of nice parks and views of the city. Plan a little time here, after reading you want to take a tour.

There are a lot of stairs in the building but I would imagine they have elevators or lifts of some kind in the building. They still hold meetings here and a lot of the gentlemen are elderly

Google "Masonic temple Philadelphia" and then click on Admission fees. There is a range of admission fees.

It is very difficult to find a free parking in this area. Paid parking garages are available throughout the center parts of Philadelphia though.
