Falmouth Museums on the Green

The Falmouth Museums on the Green, owned and operated by the Falmouth Historical Society, is a two-acre campus that has been serving the residents and visitors of Falmouth since 1900. One of the most popular sites in Falmouth for visitors, it contains the 1790 Dr. Francis Wicks House—a magnificent Federalist-period residence with guided tours demonstrating what life was like for an affluent physician in the late 18th and early 19th centuries; the recently-restored 1730 Conant House—used for exhibits, research and genealogy studies; the Hallett Barn Visitors’ Center—rebuilt in 2002 on the site of an original barn and used a welcoming point for those coming to Falmouth as well as the “Whaling Wives Gift Shop”; the Colonial Gardens—showing off plantings, such as a boxwood tree, that go back to the days prior to the American Revolution; Memorial Park —a tranquil place of refuge that is open to all visitors looking for relaxation; and the recently-opened (2012) Cultural Center—a superb, 3600 square foot structure used for public and private programs and events, public restrooms, kitchen facilities, and as a repository for archival collections to preserve Falmouth’s past.

The Museums are open, Monday-Friday, 10 am to 3 pm and Saturday, 10 am to 1 pm. The Museums offer a full slate of adult and children’s programs all throughout the calendar year. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10 am, the Museums offer walking tours of Falmouth (weather permitting). After Labor Day, the Museums will be offering trolley tours of Falmouth on Wednesdays at 10 am. Reservations are required.
