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

Intrigues, Lies and Deceptions: Allied Strategic Deception During the Second World War with Michael McNaught
September 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
It took an untold number of weapons to win World War II: tanks, submachine guns, flame throwers, rifles, and grenades. But one of the Allies’ most powerful weapons was the art of deception. Elaborate plots, phantom armies, fictious radio transmissions, controlled leaks, double agents and other clever ruses spun a deadly web of deception for the enemy. Local historian Michael McNaught will unravel some of the greatest military secrets and strategies taking place off the battlefield at this fascinating talk.
