Our Shopping Capital Augusta Maine

You might think that a visit to Augusta is complete after exploring Maine’s political history at the State House, but there’s so much more to see!

The Capitol is the perfect place to spend the morning. You can visit between 8:00AM and 5:00PM and on any weekday (excluding public holidays) on your own, or join one of the guided tours running hourly from 9:00AM until 12:00PM.

But that’s not all you can do in Augusta!
