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

VIRTUAL TALK: “Formation: A Woman’s Memoir of Stepping Out of Line” with Ryan Leigh Dostie
September 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
A Woman’s Memoir of Stepping out of Line
Named by “Esquire” as one of the Best Nonfiction Books of the Year
Ryan Dotie never imagined herself on the front lines of a war halfway around the world. But a conversation with an Army recruiter in her high-school cafeteria changed the course of her life. After being hired as a linguist in Military Intelligence, she needed to find a space for herself in the testosterone-filled world of the Army barracks. She was holding her own until the unthinkable happened: she was raped by a fellow soldier. The course of her life changed again. While struggling with PTSD and commanders who didn’t trust her story, she found herself fighting an unexpected war, one of isolation and trauma. Formation is her extraordinary journey to prove her worth, physically and mentally, in a world where the odds are stacked against her.
“Formation” grabs us by the collar and never relents, much like Dostie herself, whose path to independence gets paved with blood and sacrifice. Her gripping memoir lays bare the pain of proving yourself in a man’s world, but also the rich rewards. Most of us will probably never go to war, but Dostie’s story speaks to a daily struggle many of us face: the battle to believe in ourselves.–Sarah Hepola, New York Times bestselling author of Blackout”
