Attraction details
Reviewed 2 February 2009

The Project Puffin Visitor's Center (PPVC) is a cute little shop on Main Street in Rockland, ME. Your best bet for visiting is in the summer, however the center does have hours during the off -season as well. Please visit http://www.projectpuffin.org for store hours and details. The PPVC is run by the non-profit organization Project Puffin, and carries all kinds of puffin gifts and novelties.

The Center, in addition to selling puffin-themed gifts, celebrates the success of Project Puffin in bringing puffins and other rare Maine seabirds back to historic nesting islands. Here the public can view puffins and other seabirds in real time through a remarkable video system that delivers live video to the Center. Visitors can also learn about the success and challenges faced by Audubon and its conservation partners to restore and protect the seabirds on Maine islands and beaches. An all-around educational and fun stop in your travels!

3 and 4 days before Thanksgiving we came to Rockland and tried to become familiar with the Puffin Visitor Center. Over the period of 2 days, we tried to get into it, but a note always said that "we will be back in a little while" without giving the day nor the time of day. Very disappointed, Barb from NH and Edith from N.Y.
