Library & Museum

Freemasons Victoria Library & Museum maintains a fascinating and extensive collection of Masonic historical artefacts. With a rich history, embedded in ritual and education, the Library & Museum can be visited for a close-up view of Freemasons Victoria’s heritage.

History and heritage are core to Freemasons, so it is no surprise to find that the Freemasons Victoria Library & Museum contains an extensive collection of objects with Masonic decoration including pottery and porcelain, glassware, silver, furniture and clocks, jewels and regalia.

In addition to items belonging to famous Freemasons, there are also examples from the Museum’s extensive collection of prints and engravings, photographs and ephemera.

The Museum’s staff are always pleased to help visitors with enquiries regarding identification, and are also contactable by phone and email.

In addition to the Museum there is also an extensive Library that contains many modern and rare and out of print works concerning Freemasonry and related topics. It maintains complete collections of leading regular publications including the transactions of Quatuor Coronati, the world’s premier Lodge of research, as well as those of The Victorian Lodge of Research and other Masonic journals. Services include the loan of books and answering enquiries on Masonic history, symbolism and society.

The library and museum are open to members of the general public for the purposes of research at the discretion of library staff.
