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,

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!!
