    Museums at Night: Symbols

    May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Come and join us for Museums at Night and learn more about the symbols of Freemasonry. For centuries symbols have been used to represent ideas or qualities and they are universally used in modern life. Freemasons use symbols to reinforce moral lessons and, when combined with words in their ceremonies, this creates a memorable learning environment.
