It was in the 18th Century in the midst of religious and political chaos that the Freemasonery movement appeared in France (founded in the 17th Century in England). Its ideas, based on freedom and tolerance, triggered factors of the French Revolution. The Freemasonery Museum is located in the Grand Orient building and exhibits various documents, objects and insignia retracing the broad outline of the movement from its origins, and depicting some famous freemasons and revolutionary figures such as the politicians.
