Did you know?

Three gardens on the museum grounds are cultivated by the Falmouth Garden Club to depict how flowers were grown during the Colonial times.

The Falmouth Museums on the Green contain a treasure trove of stories and artifacts that tell the story of the town of Falmouth, Massachusetts. The museums overlook the Village Green where members of the Colonial militia practiced in the 1700s and sea captains built their homes. Two 18th-century houses display period furniture, fine art, textiles and rotating exhibits that provide a glimpse into the town’s rich historic past.

The Museum Visitor Center is located in the rustic Hallett Barn, which is wheelchair-accessible. Tour tickets are available here.  Activities are provided to visitors which introduce the town and the museums, illustrating the connection between our past and the present.

Guided Walking tours of Falmouth are given on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10 am during the visitation season (weather permitting) and cost $ 5 each.  The Whaling Wives Gift Shop is also located in the Visitors Center.

The Cultural Center is where a variety of public programs, lectures and events for both children and adults are hosted. Opened in December 2012, it is also available for private rentals.

The c.1790 Dr. Francis Wicks House is an example of what life was like for a physician in a Federalist-era home.  Guided tours are provided and visitors can learn about life in Falmouth by viewing the oldest home on the Town Green and seeing furnishings from the period.

The Museums will open for the 2016 season on June 6. Hours are 10 am to 3 pm Monday-Friday, 10 am to 1 pm Saturday

Research Library open Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 am to 2 pm. Due to construction going on with our circa 1730 Conant House, appointments are required.
