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 Heart of Everything that is Valley Forge” by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin
June 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
December 1777. King George III’s army has pummeled the Continental Army into submission, the Continental Congress is in exile, and the American Revolution appears to be lost just 18 months after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The beleaguered troops stagger into a small Pennsylvania encampment 23 miles northwest of British-occupied Philadelphia. They’re physically and morally defeated, barely equipped or expected to survive the frigid winter ahead. Their commander in chief, George Washington, is decidedly at the lowest point of his military career–certain to be relieved of his command. The situation seemed hopeless. They needed a miracle. What they got was indefatigable leadership and a last chance at redemption. With the help of his foreign and domestic advisers—Marquis de Lafayette, Baron von Steuben, Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens—in six short months, Washington re-lit the fire under the rebel cause and created a professional fighting force that would achieve a stunning victory in the Battle of Monmouth Court House and change the world forever. Find out how.
