We visited the museum and the brig with our little kids. They have been very interested in the ship. Our 5 year old son wanted to play the captain all the time. It is very well rebuild and you can easy imagine how travelling was in ancient years

I was restricted to the car when I visited here as it was raining, but it looked like a few people had parked their campers and were wandering about. Great Views of the ANZAC PEACE PARK and Harbour

We went in summer, so being close to the sea enjoying cool breeze whilst all the kids ran amok and enjoyed themselves, was a nice break for us.

So lovingly made and looked after. The guide is quite a character and certainly knew his stuff. Worth a look

My husband was very inpressed and spent a good hour moving around the brig and chatting with the volunteer. He found it very interesting and I enjoyed a quiet sit under the shrubbery, having not enjoyed a very short visit to the nearby museum

Even though "closed" for the public holiday, the kids still had a ball climbing all around the brig and playing pirates on board. A great attraction for Albany

I had hoped there would be working speakers with the audio listening devices. Read all the info to the children and they loved running round pretending they were on the high seas. Just a bit disappointed, but it was free and left donations.

Although unable to go on board for our visit we had a good look around the outside, The replica was constructed to original plans and is in a picturesque position, wish we could have gone on board but we had a tight schedule to meet,
