“Unique As A Puffin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

A hole in the wall, but worth a quick stop. The gift shop in the front is unique BUT be sure to follow the long corridor back to their video room and walls of displays - that's what makes this a worthwhile short stop. The volunteers/interns are all passionate about their work and its contagious.

“Very nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I arrived at the end of the day for this little treasure, and the wonderful person who worked there put in the video for just me. It was a very cozy place. I returned a week later to make certain that the Puffin I bought for my daughter came from this center.

“Learn and love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Clear, wonderful telling of the tale of the Arctic Puffin and the heroic work to bring them back to offshore islands in the Penobscot Bay. Best to follow this with a cruise to see the Puffins live. but even without they have great video, exhibits and sound effects so you think your are on a small island with the birds. Nice gift shop too.

“Take time for the Puffin Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

It is just a small visitors center on the center of town, but it is fun. They show a video about the Puffin's. They are a small bird that lives in Maine, you can see them out on the water a lot.
