You can easily miss the museums in Falmouth - they are on the Main Street just as you turn east on Rte 28- a collection of buildings and beautiful grounds that are open to the public. The best thing about them is the programs and walking tours are excellent - great programs all year long including lectures, discussions and other... More

The Museums on the Green, besides having great trolley & walking tours, have great programs for all ages. Their new Cultural Center is a wonderful place for people to come and enjoy an evening out. It is well worth your time to visit!

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

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!
