My husband is a Mason and we visited primarily for his interest, but the architecture grabbed me.

One must keep in mind that this building was built in the 1920s and the atmosphere reflects that. The interior designers, Marion and Katherine Davidson, later designed in New York for the Rockefeller buildings and their talent is unmistakable.

The designs are influenced by a myriad of cultures; the Czech crystal chandaliers, and the hundreds of stained glass windows and skylights are particularly stunning.

Watch where u walk! There is as much to see in the ceilings as on the floor level. And be sure to get the organ demonstration. Goosebumps!

You do not have to be a Mason to tour, but you do have to wait for s scheduled tour — ususally two times a day. Our tour guide was amazing and obviously loved his job.

All in all, an interesting two hours.

I have seen other reviews on this and the newer portion of it was never the state capitol building. Guthrie was the state capital and the original portion of the building was. None the less it is well worth the time to check this out.

All of the elegance you would expect from the building where President Roosevelt signed Oklahoma's statehood. LOOK FOR THE VERY SPECIAL PEN. Admire the marble everywhere, every color the architecture, wonderful. Take the tour and ask questions, you'll find the answers amazing.

A very interesting place to visit. Our tour guide was exceptional. He answered every question we had and covered the history very well. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of Masons.
