The Des Moines Scottish Rite Consistory is both an organization and a landmark in Iowa's Capitol city. When the facilities are not being used by the membership, parts of the Scottish Rite Building are available for public or private events. As well, the building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983.

The ground level includes the Banquet Room and Kitchen area. The Banquet Room is regularly used to serve groups as large as 600 persons. The Banquet Room has a thirty -foot ceiling and more than 8,200 square feet of space. Twelve -foot, west -facing windows provide natural lighting.

The first floor is accessed from the bronze Main Doors on the south end of the building. The main doors open into the foyer, which is finished with Italian marble walls and elaborate decoration. The First Floor includes offices and a large coat room.

The Tapestry Lounge (2nd level) is an expansive space; more than 4600 square feet that covers half the floor. The Lounge includes an ornamental fireplace, antique furniture, assorted artwork and the Aubusson Tapestry, a 17th Century French tapestry. There is an attached library that is 24 feet by 48 feet in dimension which includes pool table, TV, book cases on three walls and has a cork parquet floor.

The Conference Room (2nd floor) is the most finely appointed room in the building - with embossed ceiling, chandeliers and silk wall covering. The room includes a large conference table with eight high back chairs.
