BATH — Maine Maritime Museum is opening its doors for free to show off its newly completed sculpture representing the largest wooden sailing ship ever built in the U.S.
 
The Bath museum is holding an open house on Saturday to dedicate the sculpture of the Wyoming, a six-masted schooner built in 1909 in Bath and lost at sea off Nantucket in 1924.
 
The sculpture consists of two life-size steel structures representing the ship’s bow and stern. In between, six 120-foot flagpoles represent the ship’s masts.
 
The open house includes a dedication ceremony, shipbuilding demonstrations, river cruises and music provided by the group Schooner Fare.
