Established in 1975 by the Scottish Rite Freemasons of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library tells the story of Freemasonry and fraternalism in the context of American history. Unique in the nation, the Museum aims to be the “historical society” of American Freemasonry by collecting, preserving, interpreting and celebrating the history of fraternalism. We pay special attention to the history of the Scottish Rite and strive to serve the Masonic community.

1996, touring Revolutionary sites, our family paused at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington, Massachusetts. Memory has never ended the spiritual gain experienced. No slander can remove truth in how i, still today, feel about what i learned there. 2017

The Sacred Place I wanted to visit and finally I did it! I love to be there. I appreciate all employees of The Museum for letting me to take pictures and for showing some closed rooms.

Excellent small museum. Although fundamentally about Scottish Rites Masonry, the museum had a special exhibition of clocks that was beautifully installed and interpreted. The permanent collection of ceramics, silver, glass and textiles is a lot of fun, most are ornamented with masonic symbols.
