The Falmouth Heritage Museum- Reopening the Museum

Sign with "Closed for Pandemic" scratched outThe Falmouth Heritage Museum is again open to the public during summer.  It is open on most Tuesdays, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., June through early-October.  It is also open to visitors by appointment.

Why does the Society encourage masks and social distancing in the Museum?

After reviewing guidance for public access to public and community buildings, the Society's Board of Directors adopted a conservative approach.  Three factors drove this decision:

  • The Falmouth Heritage Museum is a small 19th century farmhouse with poor ventilation.  To improve airflow, we use window fans to push fresh air through the first-floor spaces.
  • Many of our volunteers and visitors are in higher risk categories or have family members who are—it’s just the nature of town historical societies.
  • US and Maine CDC recommend these precautions for people with risk factors while in enclosed areas.

The safety of our volunteers and visitors comes first.  The Board believes we can safely open by taking extra precautions.  Masks are not necessary outdoors or in the barn.
