    • Falmouth Heritage Museum

    Join us at the Museum and Barn as we ready the buildings for summer visitors!


    The Museum is in pretty good shape.  We will perform a light housecleaning, unpack artifacts and other items stowed for winter, and neaten the displays.  The barn isn't as well sealed  and needs a more thorough cleaning.


    We'll have cleaning equipment and supplies.  More hands makes for lighter work!


    If you have questions, please email us at info@thefhs.org or leave a message at 207-781-4727.
