Admission ticket for The World of Baltimore, October 25 to November 30, 1912. Held at the Lyric Theatre and Exposition Hall. "Worker's Season Ticket.,” BCLM Works on Paper Collection, MD8721, MDHS.


Constructed in 1814 as the Peale Museum at 225 North Holliday Street, Baltimore, the building served other uses after 1831 until it reopened in 1931 as the Municipal Museum of the City of Baltimore. In 1985, the name was changed to the Peale Museum of the Baltimore City Life Museums (also known as Baltimore City Life Museum or BCLM) to reflect its inclusion in a group of several associated historic sites and museums. 

The Baltimore City Life Museums collected and exhibited objects pertaining to the history of the city of Baltimore and its people. In addition, at its Peale site, it maintained a Museum Reference Center with particularly strong holdings of historical prints and photographs. 

In 1997, the Baltimore City Life Museums closed due to lack of funding. The collections were transferred to the Maryland Historical Society in 1998.
