Entrance Fee - $0.00

Because there is no federal Maine Acadian Culture site, there is no fee. However, many of the individual attractions in the St. John Valley charge a fee.


Maine Acadians share beliefs and experiences tying them to a common religion, languages, and history. The St. John River, land, and family are essential to their culture. The National Park Service supports the Maine Acadian Heritage Council, an association of historical societies, cultural clubs, towns, and museums that work together to support Maine Acadian culture in the St. John Valley.
