Lots of steps to get to the visitor center. Small gift shop. It was closed when we arrived so we couldn't get our park pass. The movie didn't go into the history of the island. We learned more on the carriage ride.

This place is gorgeous. A great gift shop. Lines move quickly. And it's lovely. You MUST see the movie that they have there about Acadia. It's wonderful -- stirring.

Acadia is great, this review is about the Visitors Center. We have been to other National Parks, and the staff have been so helpful. Not so here, they could barely find time to help you. They handed you a map, and said enjoy!

The Hulls Cove Visitor Center was most informative and friendly. The bus system of getting around Acadia and Bar Harbor is second to none making our experience an extremely pleasant one. Acadia National Park is amazing and the view atop Cadillac Mountain breathtaking. Although our...More

Park is open 24 hours a day but has limited access during the winter. The Visitors Center in Hull Cove is open 8:30 to 4:30
