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

The FIRST First Lady: Anne Barrett as Martha Washington
March 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10.00
In 1759, the beautiful and wealthy widow Martha Dandridge Custis married the handsome and successful soldier George Washington. This decision would lead her from the battlefields of the American Revolution to the highest echelons of the infant republic. Later eulogized as “the worthy partner of the worthiest of men,” she used her acute social sense to meet the expectations of her country and define the role of First Lady. We’ll catch up with “Lady Washington” in 1792 as she reminisces about the winters spent near the Revolutionary battlefield, the soldiers she met and comforted, and the songs they sang. She’ll also talk about her role and social obligations as First Lady, the current political climate and her concerns for her husband as he faces the challenges of guiding this new country.
