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

VIRTUAL TALK: “Quarantine: How I Survived the Diamond Princess Coronavirus Crisis” with Gay Courter
January 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
How I Survived the Diamond Princess Coronavirus Crisis
It started with a dazzling two-week southeast Asian cruise. It became a twelve-day ordeal aboard ship in Tokyo. Just as Gay and Phil Courter were about to disembark from the Diamond Princess, they suddenly found themselves at the epicenter of a global crisis over a contagious new virus. Like their shipmates, they were confined to their cabin and its balcony—trapped in a posh penitentiary—courtesy of the Japanese Ministry of Health. As they watched in terror, more and more sick and contagious passengers were loaded into ambulances and taken away. With the help of the global media and some well-placed connections, the Courters managed to influence high-ranking U.S. government officials—including those at the White House—to bring them and other Americans home to safety. Quarantine! vividly recalls the Diamond Princess episode and the couple’s additional fifteen-day quarantine under federal orders behind chain-link fencing at the pointedly less-than-posh Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. It’s an extraordinary first-hand report of an extraordinary time. PURCHASE THIS BOOK ONLINE FROM EIGHT COUSINS BOOKSTORE
