The history of America's northeasternmost state, Maine, is the focus of the Maine State Museum in Augusta, a facility that takes visitors on a visual journey from Ice Age glaciers to woolly mammoths, indigenous peoples, early colonization and on to the present. Explore 12,000 years of Maine history through artifacts, ancient skeletons, maps, old black and white photographs and other objects. Learn more about the state's wild residents in the Back to Nature exhibit, and encourage budding history buffs to consider learning more about on-going archaeology efforts in the region through the Archaeology Laboratory.
