This is an impressive little visitor centre where the passion for puffins is infectious. The video and info boards are really well done telling the story of the puffins in Maine. The day we were there a new exhibit of amazing photographs were displayed. It is a great place for children and adults and the gift shop has some cool... More

The museum is rather small with a gift shop and good information. It would be a great place for children to visit and become aware of a cute and unique bird. It was rather informative visit to learn more about a bird that we knew little of. Great to see people invest their time and energy to protect the environment... More

We spent a nice time at the center. I love my Puffin T Shirt bought in the gift shop there. The video was very informative. We took the Robertson Sea Tour Puffin Cruise out of Milbridge, Maine to see our first Puffins. Highly recommend his Puffin Cruise.

It's such a great story- puffin colonies restored in Maine. You see these adorable birds all over Maine in ads, stuffed animals and such but here you really learn about them and what it took to ensure their future in Maine.

This is a tiny little place. Half puffin gift shop half Puffin DVD viewing room. They show the DVD basically on a loop so you hang out in the gift shop area until they're ready to start it again. It's pretty short (20 minutes) but it's good and provides a lot of information. It does show baby puffins being eaten... More

A big part of our trip to Maine was to see puffins. I knew about Project Puffin-so on our was up to Acadia we made a side trip over. The film is very informative & short enough for small children. The exhibits & photos are awesome. You will never get that close to a puffin in nature so go see... More

Although the place is small, there is a very informative film. There are also some wonderful puffin pictures. Admission is free, but donations are recommended.

Accidentally stumbled on this place on way to the parking lot. They had some interactive displays by the door and we went inside. They had a small gift shop with cute stuff, beautiful pictures of puffins and have a short video about the conservation project. My kids climbed into the observation "hut" and was able to use the remote to... More

This is a small exhibit facility but highly informative and well presented. The front room of the facility is a gift shop and the larger, back room is the actual exhibit and video room. The exhibit has a short film that explains the history of Project Puffin. The exhibit and video are free. It does except donations and you can... More
