  • This was an unexpected find during our recent trip to Bar Harbor. Big Chicken Barn is a huge building filled with all manner of treasures old and newish. If you are a lover of old books and magazines,...  more »

  • I adore this place. If you're really into historic books and magazines this place is for you. I can spend hours pouring over old issues of women's magazines for here. Everything is well labeled and organized, the place is huge though.
  • I'm not sure why the other reviewers had such a bad experience, but the selection of books is wonderful (and they're very well classified), the prices are reasonable, the employees are friendly, and the bathrooms are clean (although frankly, I don't go to a bookstore for the bathrooms).
  • If you have your dog with you, it is not pet friendly.Pets are not permitted inside. Man at desk was a little rude. Cannot say anything about contents inside
  • 15 minutes before they closed they were booting me out of the store and being very rude. When I was looking at books upstairs and they turned the lights off (knowing I was still up there) 15 minutes before they closed. Wish I could give them less than one star.
  • Wow... Such mixed reviews. I am going today... We will see!
