About Us:

Welcome to the Maine State Museum! This site will introduce you to the facilities and services provided by Museum staff members, Friends, and Volunteers. We are all eager to assist as you learn more about Maine and this region, and we know that you will enjoy the experience.

Shaped by the forces of geology, and smoothed by ice age glaciers, Maine's natural environment is beautiful and complex. As the point of contact between New England, Maritime Canada and the sea, Maine has been the scene of human occupation, struggle, and enterprise for some 11,000 years. This human history extends from the first Paleo Indian hunters following the woolly mammoths, to vacationers today seeking fun and adventure.

The Maine State Museum provides an excellent overview for first time visitors and a place for life-long residents to refresh their memories.
