Come and examine in detail fine badges the freemasons call ‘jewels’. The Museum of Freemasonary collection covers three hundred years of tradition including items designed by Art Nouveau pioneer Alphonse Mucha and early engraved and enamelled examples.
Curator Mark Dennis will introduce you to the unique history and range of jewels, and afterwards you will get the chance to handle, study and draw items not normally on display to the public.
What is the Museum of Freemasonry?
The Museum of Freemasonry holds the world’s best collection of items made by and for freemasons. This includes badges, known in freemasonry as ‘jewels’. These are often of fine workmanship and contain hidden meanings in their design. For more information visit our website at www.museumfreemasonry.org.uk
