“Take time for the Puffin Center”
Reviewed 20 September 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.

“puffin souvenirs for a great cause!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Project Puffin brought puffins back to the islands off the coast of Maine after man extirpated them by hunting at the end of the 1800's. Watch the 20 minute video and then buy a few cute puffin souvenirs to help keep the project going!

“Learn about the beautiful birds.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is a small place with a big heart. The video was excellent and helps the viewer to understand the Puffin and its need for protection. The gift shop selection was small but the items were very nice, especially the earrings.

“Tiny Project Puffin Info Center Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Project Puffin is supported by the Audubon Society and has been working to recolonize a number of Maine islands with puffins. Starting in the 1970's baby puffins (old enough to travel, but not so old that they wouldn't identify their new Maine islands as nesting grounds to return to) were relocated to the islands in Maine whose Puffins had disappeared. It took 8 years to see results. Film on this, plus a few exhibits on Puffins. Easy stop if you are in Rockland; it's right on Main Street.
