About

Falmouth Museums on the Green, a museum garden in the Cape Cod, Massachusetts area, offers historic space for a couple’s wedding. This elegant venue is private, offering terrace spaces and lawn spaces and an indoor banquet hall with hardwood floors. Couples can find this venue in Falmouth, Massachusetts, approximately 10 minutes from the Woods Hole Terminal.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 100 guests can join couples for their wedding day at Falmouth Museums on the Greens with the rental of a tent. This venue has the perfect garden yard for a couple’s wedding ceremony. Blooming with hydrangeas and other colorful flowering plants, couples can begin their lives together in a wonderland of flora. Green grasses and a quaint white gazebo make the perfect touches to this magical garden space. Looking out over this fairy tale is a deck. This is the ideal location for a couple’s cocktail hour. Guests can enjoy the last few hours of sunshine while couples take wedding portraits around the property. This leads right up to the wedding reception, where couples and guests can reconvene for dinner and dancing. A reception space can be found just on the other side of the deck’s French doors. Couples not using the deck for their cocktail reception or the yard for their ceremony can use the entire outdoor area as overflow space for their reception. The banquet hall room of the museum hosting the reception features an arched ceiling, polished hardwood floors, and neutral walls, allowing couples to work their wedding colors in wherever and however they see fit.

    Beautiful gardens, intimate feel

    We chose the Falmouth Museums on the Green because our theme was A Midsummer Night's Dream and we wanted a magical, outdoor, nature-theme with an intimate feel, and a touch of nostalgia. Our families both have a history in whaling on Nantucket and the museum staff were kind enough to leave up the whaling ship paintings I asked them to. Know that, however, for a wedding, your guests are not allowed inside of the actual museums with artifacts and the contract states this fact. But there were many elements of history visible, the gardens were lush and colorful with winding paths we used for our procession. It was just the right atmosphere for us, and just the right price, very reasonable for 8 whole hours, given that we hired a caterer, bar service, and tent company as well.
    Even with our guest list of 100 people, which is the MAX capacity, our family said it still felt intimate and close because the cultural center and vast green grounds allowed for people to spread out and move. Mark, the director, was so helpful in answering our questions and helped to set up some tables that they allowed us to use indoors for the DJ, gifts, the buffet, etc. The house manager Annie was also very helpful in setting up and went out of her way to help us clean up, even though it wasn't her job to do so. Be aware, this venue is not for loud or rambunctious party animals, because of the church and quiet neighbors next door in historic Falmouth. We were pretty tame, still had fun dancing to music, used a TIPS certified bar service, and overall loved our magical experience at the museums on the green.

    My wedding was this past September at Museums on the Green and it was spectacular! The venue was beautiful and it is great place if you are having a small wedding and want something more on the simple side. My guests had such a great time as well! The staff was great to work with. They made the day incredibly easy for me. I would recommend this venue to anyone! You won’t be disappointed

    Not a wedding, but a surprise 80th birthday party in August 2017. Everything was perfect from the start - and my mom still is talking about it 4 months later. We had about 30 guests and the staff of the Museums on the Green couldn't have been more accommodating or responsive with their time, expertise and general friendliness, especially Carolyn. Though we did no cooking ourselves, the kitchen was spotless, and the caterer (Roche Bros in Mashpee) knew the place and how the oven worked and it all worked out so well. Would absolutely recommend! A beautiful spot.
