This is a well preserved example of a pre-Revolutionary War fort with many artifacts, both indoors and outdoors. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and answered any and all of my children's questions. Really puts life into the American history that they study in both 5th and 7th grades. With authentic details, you can imagine how difficult life was for soldiers in this period when there was no electricity, and no heat during freezing cold Maine winters.
I found the well stocked dry goods store particularly interesting and there were in fact things that the docents allowed the kids to touch and hold.
Worth a stop if you are in Augusta and you get a nice view of the Kennebec river from the property. Plenty of parking on site since they share a parking lot with the August City Hall.
