This is included with your admittance fee. Otherwise, kind of underwhelming. But then again, I grew up in a maritime environment, and have toured countless vessels over the years. Worth a look, as it only takes a few minutes. Not a lot to see here.

We browsed around the Acadia for a few minutes as part of our entry to the maritime museum. It was interesting and good to see... look closely at the hours though! We were there on a Friday and the ship closed at 3:30pm.
