As Maine's capitol city, Augusta's rich history mixes well with a smart cosmopolitan edge that is unique to the Pine Tree State. History buffs will enjoy the Maine State Museum, a massive complex that traces the state's outdoors, agricultural and industrial heritage; while the Margaret Chase Smith Museum and Library in nearby Skowhegan chronicles the life of one of Maine's pioneering women politicians. Old Fort Western, meanwhile, is a stark reminder of Maine's frontier roots more than 300 years ago. Both children and adults will enjoy the varied activities found at the Children's Discovery Museum as well as exploring the incredible beauty found in the Maine outdoors at Moosehead Lake, Lake St. George State Park, the Augusta Nature Center, and the Sunday River Ski Resort. Finally, there is much to like about the Theater at Monmouth's many show stopping performances. When seeking a little bit of everything in your search for things to do, keep Augusta in mind.
