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 new virtual exhibits featuring items from the archives. 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!
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
