Tom's next guest is Dr. Nancy Proctor, the chief strategy officer and founding executive director of The Peale Museum here in Baltimore.

The Peale is the oldest museum building in the United States. It’s gone through many changes since it opened in 1814, and on Saturday, it will celebrate another historic change when it opens for the first time after a five-year, five and-a-half million-dollar renovation.
