The design of the building and grounds are excellent. The accommodations in the building are not so accommodating. Too bad. Could be a great place to visit after going to the state museum.

The Maine state capital isn’t as glitzy as some state capitals, but our tour, led by Crystal, took about an hour and was interesting and informative. You visit the main hall of flags, the house and the senate. You can’t go up into the dome...More

What better way to get an insight into a state than to visit the state capitol. We enjoyed wondering about and seeing the pictures of previous governors and politicians. Would recommend!

This is not open during weekends; however, we were able to walk along the grounds and take a peek through the windows. It is a beautiful building and worth the detour off the interstate to see this and downtown Augusta.

Arrived just in time for what turned out to be a private guided tour as we were the only ones. Enjoyed the plain, understated building and grounds that are well kept.
