Baltimore City’s Department of General Services is in the final stages of replacing the Peale’s roof and restoring the exterior masonry. Renovation has now begun on the cupola that gives natural light to the “picture gallery.” It was the addition of this gallery to the Federal-style row house that made Rembrandt Peale’s 1814 museum an architectural innovation by Robert Cary Long, Sr.
The replacement of the Peale’s roof and restoration of its exterior is being undertaken by Baltimore City’s Department of General Services.
Completion of the renovation work is planned by end of Summer 2017. The Peale is open for special events and available for rental throughout the renovation of the building’s exteriors. Contact us if you have questions or would like to visit!
