“We had a wonderful graduation party with two other families at the Falmouth Historical Society–thank you!  You were so pleasant and helpful.  The facilities are top notch and worked so well for our party.”  Lizanne Foley

“What can I say about my wedding… was absolutely perfect.  Falmouth Museums on the Green just sparkled that day.  Charlie and I didn’t have to worry about a thing.  All was ready and waiting for us to arrive for the ceremony.   Many of my guests commented on how friendly and helpful you were.  One said that they felt “they were attending an event at your home.”   Carole and Charlie Dembkowski

The Falmouth Museums on the Green was the perfect place to hold my daughter’s graduation party.  I was very pleased with the flexibility of the staff to accommodate my needs and the support provided during planning and set up for the party.  I was looking for a casual yet sophisticated venue to hold the graduation party and I was very pleased with the outcome.  Many of my guests commented on how nice the facility was and enjoyed the gathering.’”  Karen Hart
