Our kids (6 and 3,5) loved the trip to the replica and enjoyed the tour in and outside the boat. There is a museum nearby and a very small playground.

The headsets bring the story of the journey of the pioneer settlers to life.Voices, sounds and narration all adds atmosphere to the replica (constructed to exact size and plans of original brig) Children especially love the experience. In a picturesque setting and near the Museum. Admission price small and well worth seeing.

The Brig Amity is a huge replica ship which you can step aboard and explore via the audio guide. There's three decks to explore and the lower levels have quite low ceilings so you can really get an idea of the tough conditions. Pretty interesting and just $5 from the WA Museum. Well worth seeing. The sights of the water... More

Cheap and exciting. I love old ships and it was most interesting learning about them. I felt like I'm in Pirates of the Carribean!!

It was great to be able to walk around on the boat itself and see the conditions the whalers had to live in. Although I don't like the idea of whaling they must have been really dedicated men, especially when the seas were rough. One man even lost a leg!
