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

Suspicion, Betrayal and Hysteria in 1692 Salem
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the national bestseller “Cleopatra” unpacks the mystery of the Salem Witch Trials.
In 1692, during an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, an entire village went insane. The pre-teen daughters of the local minister are mysteriously overcome by convulsions. Their uncontrollable screaming sends the superstitious community into a panic. Lacking other explanations, people begin to suspect Satanic influence—and the accusations of witchcraft soon fly like enchanted broomsticks. The town is pitted against itself, and by the time the hysteria fades, 19 men and women are hanged, another pressed to death. But what actually happened? Pulitzer Prize-winner Stacy Schiff’s The Witches: Salem, 1692 steps back from more than three centuries of hyperbole and supposition and gives us our most complete account yet of the first great American mystery.
