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: “The Craft” with John Dickie
February 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
How the Freemasons Made the Modern World
Insiders call it the Craft. It was founded in London in 1717. Within two decades, it had spread across the globe. Today, its members number six million worldwide, over a million in the United States alone. It is one of the most famous, most influential and most misunderstood of all secret brotherhoods. And, at times, it has been the most feared. It is Freemasonry. And this centuries-old story has a cast straight out of the history books. Under George Washington, the Craft became a creed for the new American nation. Under Napoleon, it became a tool of authoritarianism and then a cover for revolutionary conspiracy. Both the Mormon Church and the Sicilian mafia owe their origins to Freemasonry. From Winston Churchill and Walt Disney, to Buzz Aldrin and Benjamin Franklin, to Duke Ellington and the Duke of Wellington, John Dickie’s “The Craft” explores a movement that not only helped forge modern society but has substantial influence today.
