TIME TRAVEL TOURS AT THE PEALE
BALTIMORE, MD, UNITED STATES
OUR 200-YEAR TIME MACHINE
In January, 2018, the Peale received a mysterious package which included detailed plans on how to build a 200-year time machine.
The decision was made to follow the plans and build the time machine in secret. After nine-months of construction at a remote location, the time machine has been thoroughly tested and proven safe, and we are thrilled to now offer Time Travel Tours to the general public, as well as researchers, educators and historians.
The Escapement Time Travel Agency has been setup inside the Peale to oversee reservations, distill the necessary fuel for Time Travel, and manage operations of our Time Travel Tours.
You can visit the Escapement Time Travel Agency at the Peale, or contact one of our Certified Time Travel Agents at
Reservations for Time Travel Tours can also be made online here.
