Maine State Museum

Maine State Museum

Visitors can see the homes, shops and mills where Mainers have lived and worked for centuries, and are also encouraged to explore the factories, ships and farms that are an integral part of the state’s rich history. Permanent exhibits within the museum travel through the history of Maine's people. The museum offers a variety of educational programs, including seminars on prehistory, maritime and fishing history, and military history.

We hope you enjoy our work.
