Hard to find. Of the 24 state capitols that we have visited , this is the worst. Not worth the gas to get there. Just stop at a restaurant, not the Olive Garden, and keep driving. I cannot believe that this is a state capitol !! Was Bangor, Rockland, Portland , Camden, Lewiston already taken. This was the most disappointing... More

My wife and I stopped here on Memorial Day (25 May 2015) as we were driving from Kennebunk to our timeshare resort in Jackman, ME. We entered Augusta on US 201 and followed that route all the way to Jackman. Entering Augusta via this route provides nice views of the city and exciting views of the State Capitol. We parked...

Known for its only surviving wooden made fort, a great walk inside and along the river overlooking the bridge, spectacular colors of trees-an extra bonus.

We enjoy visiting capitol buildings with a rotunda and dome. This building does not disappoint. The dome rises 185 feet. You can view the inside of the dome from the rotunda. Of special note, near the center of the floor under the rotunda is a swirl-shaped fossil estimated to be more than 475 million years old. Outside, "The Lady of... More

Our tour guide, Dan, was the best. We had an excellent tour on Thursday of this week. Dan was very knowledgeable and even introduced us to one of the Maine State Senators. We'll worth the trip. A must do in Augusta.

Well it is the state capitol, and maybe if you are from Maine, its interesting in that respect, but as out of state visitor, there wasn't much here, except a good place to stop for lunch driving on to our next destination. It didn't help that hte actual building is closed on the weekend.

This is an impressive structure dominating the skyline of Augusta. The Legislature was not in session but we were run through very tight security entering the building. There was a tour available that lasts about an hour but we decided to wander around the building by ourselves. While the outside of the building is impressive, we were not overwhelmed by... More
