If you're in the area and like history then the walking tour is for you. They only do it a couple of days a week but it is well worth the $5 fee (which also gets you in to the museums). Our guide was very knowledgeable and had done a lot of research about Falmouth, the whaling industry, and the... More

Learn about the history of the area in a low-key, beautifully restored building and wonderful natural and artistic garden. It is so convenient from downtown Falmouth, right on the Green, just a three minute walk from the stores on Main Street. The guides are friendly, the information interesting, and the atmosphere relaxing to be taken in at your own pace.

Too many visitors miss the Falmouth Museeums - they are a treat - be sure to tour the area and the beautiful garden. There is a new hall where wonderful lectures take place throughout the year. This is a favorite spot

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!

Just went here for a wedding rehearsal dinner! There was a nice sized room that had one side open to a very nice wide porch. The food was delicious and service attentive. Had nice outside areas for the wedding party and families to take pretty photos. The room was perfectly sized and bathrooms were clean. Parking is available behind the... More

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
