  • Visit one of Maine’s many history and heritage Museums.

  • Roam the state’s Historic Districts, which are scattered throughout Maine. They feature everything from sea captains’ houses to gigantic mills.

  • Wander through those historic homes that are preserved as museums. These allow you an intimate glimpse of how Mainers once lived and worked.

  • Enjoy the fairs, festivals and concerts that help Maine connect the many strands of its heritage and culture.
