We're working on a new storytelling project with Maryland Humanities and the Smithsonian's Museum on Main Street program that documents the voices of new Maryland voters, like Amber Dukeman from Frostburg University. Her story is one of many stories that will be included in "Voices and Votes: Democracy in America" exhibition, which is traveling across the state of Maryland through 2022. What was YOUR first voting experience like?

Why is the Peale important to Baltimore?

We are proud to house the largest collection of Baltimore stories in the the world; and amplify the voices of this historic city in the United States' first museum building. However, it is the long-lasting connections we make, and community we serve that bring us the most joy. As we renovate our historic building, we'll be sharing messages from our friends and supporters on why the Peale is so important to them🥰

📹Please watch this video from esteemed artist Sunhee Kim Jung and be inspired to contribute to the renovations of the Moses William Center, the new space for our Accomplished Arts Apprentices workforce development program. Your support means the world to us! To donate, visit thepealecenter.org/campaign

The Peale is working on a storytelling project with Maryland Humanities and the Smithsonian's Museum on Main Street program that documents the voices of new voters who cast their ballots for the first time recently. Amir Gawish, from the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore, answers the question: Does your vote matter?

Part of the "Voices and Votes" exhibition, now @AlleganyMuseum in Western, Maryland. The exhibition will be on tour in Maryland through 2022.

"My mom made great biscuits; she made so many good things that were homestyle, and I miss her and wish I could cook half as well as she did."

We're all about stories! Since 2017, we've been helping the Smithsonian's Museum on Main Street program share stories from folks all over the nation, about everything from sports to jobs to food. Here's one that comes in just in time for Mother's Day!

You did it! You secured the full $50,000 matching grant for the Peale's renovations! Other donors were so inspired by your generosity they have offered a new $15,000 match to complete the renovation of the Moses Williams Center at the Peale for the Accomplished Arts Apprentices program to be based there. This "artsforce" development program helps young people, like Savage (pictured here), learn gallery preparation, exhibition installation, art handling, entrepreneurship and life skills! https://mailchi.mp/thepealecenter.org/3may2021-2448622

The Peale Center

📷What did the inside of the Peale Museum look like in the 19th century? Maybe something like this.

The Peale Center for Baltimore History and Architecture is a 501©3 tax-exempt, non-profit corporation established to restore the historic Peale Museum building as a center to celebrate the unique history of Baltimore, its people and their buildings. The Peale Center began as Friends of the Peale in 2008. In June 2012, the Friends of the Peale and the Baltimore History Center at the Peale, a Maryland non-profit corporation formed by Judge John Carroll Byrnes, joined forces as The Peale Center for Baltimore History and Architecture.

Today, the Peale is relaunching as a production house for authentic stories of Baltimore’s people and places, and a laboratory for innovation in the cultural sector worldwide.

"You some kind of enTHUsiast?" Jim Dilts was once asked at the mouth of a West Virginia railroad tunnel. He sure was – and this city is so much the richer for it. An appreciation of a true Baltimore original.
Very exciting to see the oldest purpose-built museum in the Western Hemisphere, is starting to host such interesting programs. I am sure the Peale boys would be pleased.
The new roof on The Peale is almost done!
