Lots of interesting Maine history. Came up on a rainy day from Boothbay Harbor last fall, and it was well worth the drive.

We came to Augusta to see this museum. It was amazing. We enjoyed our walk through the museum. So many wonderful things to see and so much history. We really enjoyed our visit. The museum is $3 and worth more then that!!! We will definitely take visitors there when we have them visit us. Definitely should be on everyone's bucket list to visit. So many displays!!

We visited this museum on October 16. There is a garage with free parking for visitors in Sewall Street. This is a classic state museum with information about the indigenous, early settlers, industry and how the Mainers lived. No modern multimedia to consult information.

This museum must rank highly on your "bucket list". If your are a native and you have not taken the time to visit this facility then you can not refer to yourself as an authentic Mainiac. Maybe a little over-stated but this museum is very much worth your time. Take your family out on a Saturday when the weather out of doors is inclement.or cold and enjoy an educational experience learning a little about the wonderful state of your residence. The displays have been around for decades and I/we have visited only twice in my seventy-one years and it never seems to get old. A simply wonderful place to spend an afternoon with your young children or grand-children and give them an experience they will never forget and always be reminded of you years later when they reflect on the day of.their visit. Don't forget,you may even learn something too! DIRIGO

While we visited Augusta for Fort Western, the French and Indian site that also served Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr during the Revolution. Unfortunately, it was closed (restricted hours during off season). At a local state office, someone suggested we try the Maine State Museum. It was great, covering everything from rocks to women's sufferage. My favorites were: -- rocks and crystals from Oxford County -- (non-native) Irish Elk horns, compared to moose and elk -- taxidermied moose calf -- shell midden -- woman hand-packing sardine cans (she clipped heads and tails with scissors) -- many animal dioramas This wonderful museum is suitable for both adults and children. It is also inexpensive. As a senior, I paid $2 -- wow!
