Behind The Scenes Tour: Masonic Temple says
Dedicated November 25, 1926, this 1,037-room, 14-story building was unique among Masonic buildings because all of the various Masonic bodies were housed in the same structure. It has 12 million cubic feet of space, making it the largest and most complex building of its kind in the world. It includes seven Craft Lodge Rooms, each with different decorative treatments, the motifs of decoration being taken from the Egyptian, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Italian Renaissance, Byzantine, Gothic and Romanesque. The rooms are all true to the period. All of the artwork throughout the building, especially the beautifully decorated ceilings, was done under the personal direction of famous Italian artists. This tour is your chance to explore a truly unique Detroit landmark.
