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 Daughters of Yalta” with Catherine Grace Katz
April 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
THE DAUGHTERS OF YALTA
The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War
Three edgy superpowers. One tension-filled week. The Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear the wartime alliance among Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin apart—just when victory was close at hand. But there’s more to this story: three intelligent (and very glamorous) young women were also there: Anna Roosevelt, Sarah Churchill and Kathleen Harriman. The Daughters of Yalta. Each one was fiercely loyal and politically savvy. Each one supported her father in different ways. The president relied on Anna to keep his most damaging secrets. The Prime Minister depended on Julia, the actress-turned-RAF officer, for her astute political mind. And the U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union, Averell Harriman, counted on Kathleen, a champion skier and war correspondent, to help manage the American delegation behind the scenes. Their stories reveal family relationships and bring the human experience to this momentous conference– tragedy, love, betrayal and even humor. Together, these fathers and daughters not only witnessed history, they helped shape it.
