    • About

      Looking for a bird tour in Acadia National Park, a nature tour around Mount Desert Island, a kid-friendly outdoor adventure, or a family tide pool exploration on the rocky shores near Bar Harbor? Do you need a map, a field guide, binoculars (to own or rent), or that special nature-related gift or game for someone back home? The Natural History Center is the place for you! Based out of our Bar Harbor nature store, we offer nature and bird tours throughout Acadia National Park, Downeast Maine, and beyond. We are a family run business that enjoys sharing nature, whether leading you on a tour or sharing information while looking over a map. Our tours cater to beginning and advanced nature-lovers, novice and seasoned birders, families, small groups, kids with lots of energy, and people with mobility limitations. Call us to plan a tour that meets your needs and interests. Stop by our shop to browse our selection of natural history books (birds, lichens, dragonflies, and everything in between), binoculars and spotting scopes, nature-activity books for children, or our personal favorite game, Birdopoly!
