The museum itself is very small although the program they present is quite fascinating.

“Puffin Headquarters for Maine”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

This little store front houses the HQ of the Puffin Project, which has worked to reintroduce puffins to Maine since the 1970s when they were in danger of disappearing. The puffins are on several small islands offshore- very hard to spot, but the puffin center often has video cameras out on the islands in the burrows. So sometimes the puffin center is the absolute best place to spot puffins in action- you can watch them on TV monitors live! There is a great short film about how the puffins were brought back. The place is made to be kid friendly and best of all it's FREE.

“Informative center with nice gift shop”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Puffin Project has a short film (15-20 minutes) about the depletion of the puffins on the Maine coastal islands, and the repopulation efforts. Very interesting! the gift shop has fun stuff that you don't see elsewhere. Worth a stop!

“Passion for the Puffin”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

I'm glad our family had time to stop by this great little information center. After learning about the Puffin's our family decided to take a boat trip to see the Puffins first hand. We loved teaching the children about such a local and unique animal.
