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 a new virtual exhibit “Cash, Credit or Eels: Shopping Local in the 1820s” featuring new items from the archives each week. 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!
We’ll announce the official opening for the 2020 season and additional programming here. We do not plan to host historic house tours or walking tours until mid-August 2020. Our historic trolley tours will not be held this year.
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: “Washington’s End” with Jonathan Horn
July 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
The Final Years and Forgotten Struggle
This story begins where most leave off. After eight years as president, George Washington exits the office and enters what would become the most bewildering stage of his life. Surrendering power proved to be more difficult than he imagined and brought his life to an end he never expected. Nor will you. With every page turn of this astonishingly true story, you’ll discover something you never knew about Washington’s forgotten last years: from his return to his farm, to the intrigues, feuds and personal torment that followed. In fact, the statesman who had staked his legacy on withdrawing from public life found himself feuding with his successors and drawn back into military command. This immaculately researched book, powerfully told through the eyes of Washington, his family members, friends, and foes fills a crucial gap in our nation’s history and will forever change the way we view the name Washington.
