For just a small donation you can board the replica boat and get a real sense of history. The real beginning of Albany.

Great to be able to crawl around a replica and feel what it would have been like, hear the history audio, and look at items. Was informative and fun.

Great time on board. Learnt so much. Staff excellent. Lay in the cabins below deck. Listened to the noise of how it used to be below decks. How they had some many people and livestock on board all those years ago in such cramped conditions. Really interesting , must do in Albany.

The recreation of the ship is authentic. The head phone narration brings the tales to life. Great for the kids and adults too. Very good price for admission. Setting is pretty, overlooking Princess Royal Harbour, Albany.

Excellent ! Ship was bought by Scottish family from Canadian owner and sailed to Albany. Trip took 6 months. It is an exact replica of the original Amity which was lost at sea. Well worth a visit and try and talk to Hank who is very knowledgeable about the history

Hubby wanted to see this attraction. We went in the afternoon but it was closed so went back next day when it was open to visitors. The guide was very informative and as no other people were there at the time enjoyed hearing about his maritime adventures. The history of the Brig is quite remarkable and we were awed by... More

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
