From the publicity:

Just steps from Madison Square Park stands the headquarters building of the Grand Lodge of Free Accepted Masons of the State of New York. The building contains a total of 13 Masonic lodge meeting rooms, each with its own distinctive design and character highlighting some aspect of the history, symbolism, or philosophy of the Masonic fraternity.

Tours ongoing throughout both days will explore approximately five of the building’s ornate historic meeting rooms.
