Across the street from the Village Green, where Colonial militia used to train, stand these historically focused museums. The two main museum buildings, inside 18th-century houses, display period furniture, fine art, textiles, and temporary exhibits. The 1790 Dr. Francis Wicks House is set up to show what a doctor’s office was like 200 years ago. The Conant House, built about 1730, has revolving exhibits covering topics such as Victorian Life in Falmouth. The museum’s visitors’ center is inside the reconstructed Hallett Barn, first built in the 18th century. Walking tours of Falmouth depart from the barn at 10am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings in season. Behind the barn is the Cultural Center where many of the museum’s activities take place. The gardens—a Colonial-style flower garden, an herb garden, and a Memorial Park—are particularly exquisite.
