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

CANCELLED: The Watchman’s Night Off
October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
BECAUSE OF POOR WEATHER PREDICTIONS FOR THIS WEEKEND, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
THE WATCHMAN’S NIGHT OFF
A Slightly Spooky (Free!) Outdoor Event
We’ve reimagined our annual haunting! While the historic houses will be closed, the campus will be decorated with pumpkins, and spectral visitors are expected to pop in to stir things up on the Watchman’s night off. The ghostly cast includes “Night Watchman” veterans, as well as new participants who want to tap into their inner thespians for this one-night-only performance.
Put a pumpkin in the patch
Carve or decorate a pumpkin to include in the Museums’ display (plain pumpkins are also welcome!). All participants will be entered into a raffle. The winner, chosen at random, will receive a $20 gift certificate to Eight Cousins Bookstore on Main Street in Falmouth. Drop off pumpkins at the Hallett Barn Visitor Center on Thursday, October 29, from 4-6 pm or Friday, October 30, from 9-11 am.
Admission is free. Social distancing will be observed.
THANK YOU SPONSORS!
