Due to the pandemic, the Museums on the Green is currently closed to the public. However, we have created a dynamic new virtual series of talks with authors and historians (see what’s planned below) and a new virtual exhibit “Cash, Credit or Eels: Shopping Local in the 1820s” featuring new items from the archives each week. You can also read the latest issue of “Untold Tales of Falmouth” and catch up with previously published Tales here. Plus…there’s more to come!
We’ll announce the official opening for the 2020 season and additional programming here. We do not plan to host historic house tours or walking tours until mid-August 2020. Our historic trolley tours will not be held this year.
The Museums on the Green is also seeking submissions for its “Covid-19 Archives”. Individuals, businesses and groups are invited to submit journals, essays, poems, photographs, songs, videos and other items that illustrate what life has been like in Falmouth during the 2020 pandemic. Later, we’ll share these stories and artifacts with you–and preserve them for generations to come in our new archives collection. MORE INFO

“Countdown to Pearl Harbor: The Twelve Days to the Attack” with Steve Twomey
May 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
Warnings, clues, missteps, assumptions. In late November of 1941, Washington sent an ominous message to the commander of the Pacific Fleet, warning Hawaii of possible danger. But the intel was vague; the threat was unclear. Although the commander’s intelligence unit had lost track of Japan’s biggest aircraft carriers, he assumed they were far away. Meanwhile, a Japanese spy was counting the warships in the harbor and reporting to Tokyo. While we know what happened next, we may not know exactly why. As Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Steve Twomey unravels the twelve days leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, we begin to realize why even smart, experienced, talented people were looking down at their feet when they should have been scanning the sky.
