The observation deck is only accessible via timed tours, so plan/call ahead. The guides are very knowledgeable and take visitors through multiple museums/rooms before ascending to the top. This was a surprisingly polished tour with plenty of historical, cultural, and Masonic artifacts to see.

The building was fun to visit from the outside. We didn't go inside because of the pricing but it was still nice to visit.
