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 Ravenmaster” with Christopher Skaife
May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
The first behind-the-scenes account of life with the legendary ravens at the world’s eeriest monument
It is said that if the Tower of London’s ravens should ever leave, the Crown will fall and Britain with it. That puts more than a little pressure on the Ravenmaster which, surprisingly, is a serious title indeed. After decades of serving the Queen, Yeoman Warder Christopher Skaife became caretaker of the infamous ravens. In The Ravenmaster, he lets us in on these unusual, brilliant and often misunderstood birds: their moods and habits, pecking order, social structure, and diet (raw meat soaked in blood from Smithfield Market). Ravens hold grudges, play tricks, grieve loss, bond tightly, and have definite individual likes and dislikes. The Tower’s ravens have also had harrowing and humorous adventures. While the master has tried to let the “ravens be ravens,” they have developed a relationship that is rewarding to both …and the four million tourists who flock to the Tower every year.
