What a wonderful surprise to discover the Project Puffin center on a day trip to town. Special touches like the audio and the prints on the floor to follow are sweet. May have to bring my nephew with me next time - he'd love it.

The "Puffin" center was close to the Trade Winds where we stayed. Basically, it's a rather small facility that shows a video on Puffins every half hour or so. Killed some time and learned about puffins.

Free (donation suggested). Beautiful photos of puffins. You will learn a lot about the reintroduction of the puffins to the Maine coast. Won't take too long, maybe 15-20 minutes (longer if you watch the video).

I've always enjoyed puffins and I got a chance to learn more about them at this centre. A nice place to take kids for a short visit and watch their 20 min video (starts on the hour). Good to learn how the puffins were reintroduced to the Maine area.

This place is definitely worth stopping by and checking out. I learned a lot about puffins in a very short time. Doesn't cost you anything and they operate strictly on donations.

The video about the life of the puffins is great! They have a small gift shop selling a wide selection of puffin souvenirs.

Very informative with a short, interesting video regarding the Puffin Project! Great for kids 9 and over, younger ones may become bored. You don't get much for your money..

This is a worthwhile stop, perhaps a must see, for the traveler. The small center contains a gift shop up front and a video room in the rear, which is adorned with terrific photos, displays, and articles on the puffin. The video is outstanding! It explains the life cycle, habitat, and challenges of the puffin. The puffins were driven out... More

If you love puffins as I do, or if you are concerned for the welfare of endangered species, a visit to Project Puffin is a great idea. They have cute merchandise for reasonable prices (I got a pair of the womens puffin embellished socks) and friendly staff. Plenty of literature is also available. Make a contribution to help save these... More
