• Maine State Museum - Augusta, Maine

      Four floors and thousands of square feet showcase life in Maine from 12,000 years ago through recent years. Natural and cultural exhibits show how Mainers have lived and worked, the natural resources of the state - all beautifully curated and displayed. The scale can be huge- such as this replica timber from the St. Mary or the mill-water wheel actually operating equipment and visible on two floors. And don't miss the Cabinet of Curiosities. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the displays - one of the best museums in the country!
