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

NO MAN’S LAND
The Trailblazing Women Who Ran Britain’s Most Extraordinary Military Hospital During World War I
It took a global war and a pandemic to blaze this trail. A month after war broke out in 1914, doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson set out for Paris. They opened a hospital in a luxury hotel and treated hundreds of casualties plucked from France’s battlefields. Their work was so successful that the British Army asked them to set up a hospital in the heart of London. Nicknamed the “Suffragettes Hospital,” Endell Street soon became known for its lifesaving treatments. Yet, their pioneering work would have been impossible prior to the war and the Spanish flu pandemic. Then, female doctors were restricted to treating women and children and not allowed to operate on men. Whether they knew it at the time or not, these strong and brilliant women seized an opportunity. They overcame bureaucratic hurdles, made great contributions to their fields and humanity and experienced unexpected freedoms during this very turbulent of time.
