OUR 200-YEAR TIME MACHINE

time_travel_tours_peale_timemachine

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.
