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 Hunt for History” with Nathan Raab
March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
THE HUNT FOR HISTORY
On The Trail of the World’s Lost Treasures–from the letters of Lincoln, Churchill, and Einstein to the Secret Recordings Onboard JFK’s Air Force One
Nathan Raab is one of the world’s most knowledgeable and respected experts in historical documents. He spotted a letter from British officials that secured the Rosetta Stone, discovered a piece of the first electric cable Edison laid, restored a fragmented letter from Andrew Jackson that led to the infamous Trail of Tears, and located copies of missing audio recorded on Air Force One as the plane brought JFK’s body back to Washington. This dogged detective has uncovered thousands of interesting documents and artifacts related to important historic figures: from Alexander Hamilton and George Washington to Winston Churchill and Neil Armstrong, to Amelia Earhart and Albert Einstein. He’s also followed false leads and ferreted out forgeries. You may have seen his column, “Historically Speaking” on Forbes.com. You’ll get to hear about his wild treasure hunts firsthand at this unfailingly, entertaining virtual talk.
