Once again being off season paid a great benefit. The museum house was holding an open house and the Christmas decorations had just been put in place. The volunteers were both most helpful with their knowledge and willing to spend time explaining and answering our questions. Our time was well spent and we gained a much better understanding of the... More

I wanted to find out a little about my ancestors. Meg was super helpful and patient at the archives. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We did the walking tour which was super..The museum is interesting and well set up. Don't miss it.

The grounds and the new Education Center here are worth the membership... This year there was a stellar lecture series with such topical lectures on Lincoln, WWII and mysteries about murders on Cape Cod that might even link the noted crime boss Whitey Bulger. Fantastic place. Have not done the walking tours yet.... this summer!

The Museums on the Green are staffed by people who care about their local history. Here you can hear about the Lawrence family - brothers who were Yankee whalers and learn about their wives who also went to sea. He setting is very pretty, the collection is modest but the curators are infectious in their enthusiasm!

The museums on the green are right across from the beautifully decorated Falmouth town green (hence the name!) and all are a wonderful visit to help you get into the Christma spirit! They are beautiful anytime of year,, but especially decorative for the Christmas season. If you have the time, there is also a beautiful nutcracker collection at the new... More

The ladies in our group wanted to go sight seeing while the guys went to the beach (it was a warm muggy day). I had hoped we would escape the heat in the museum (not so). Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting - but it was warm and not air-conditioned so we became tired half way through it.... More

We stayed near the museums and it was a quick walk to see them. My husband enjoyed himself more than he thought he would! Plan to visit these one time.

And the museums are part of that fun ... they are a "short" easy tour and they often have special events.

We didn't find much to do in this town, but these museums are well worth visiting. Friendly staff willing to answer any questions and spend the time talking to you. Don't rush you. The house is beautiful and so are the gardens. My mother found lots to buy in the gift store, lots of civil war books.
