Spread out on a riverside plain in the town of Orono, the main campus of the University of Maine (founded in 1868) features a pleasing mix of historic and contemporary buildings. The campus was originally designed by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, but its early look has been obscured by later additions. On campus in the Collins Center for the Arts, the modern and spacious Hudson Museum (www.umaine.edu/hudsonmuseum; [tel] 207/581-1901) features exhibits on anthropology and native culture. While it’s full of crafts and artwork from native cultures around the world, it’s especially strong in North American displays—there’s even a wigwam on view.
