A short informative film is provided regarding the restoration of Puffins as well as other birds. It is free although donations is encouraged. They have a hidden area for young kids to view the film.

I've loved puffins for decades so this was a natural stop for me. They staff is always very friendly and the center is very informative. It has grown throughout the years and is slowly becoming more interactive.
