Preserving Falmouth's Heritage Falmouth Historical Society 

Welcome to The Falmouth Historical Society.  Preservation has been our mission since we were founded in 1966.  And it still is.   Our members volunteer their time to promote interest in the history of Falmouth, Maine, through our collections and outreach to the community.  We provide educational programs, assist with research into local families and history, and conduct tours of the Falmouth Heritage Museum.  The Society is a non-profit organization.

 Museum Hours

The Falmouth Heritage Museum will re-open on Tuesday, June 7th.

Until then, only the Museum is closed.  Society volunteers are still busy working and meeting online.  If you have a question about Falmouth history or an item in our collections, please contact us via email ( or telephone (207-781-4727).  If you need access to an artifact or document in our collections, we can make that happen.

Winter (late October-May)

The museum is closed due to the high cost of utilities and maintenance for a 19th century house during a Maine winter.  Safety of our visitors and volunteers is a concern—despite our best efforts to clear snow and ice, the area around the steps is often treacherous.

Summer (June-October 2022)

Most Tuesdays, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Check our calendar to see exactly which Tuesdays we are open. Please call ahead at (207) 781-4727 to confirm that the Museum is open.
