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!

Good for the kids - they will love to climb onboard. This is next to the Museum complex so lots to see.

Interesting replica that gives you an idea of what early explorers ust have gone through. Very tiny and well maintained. A great photo opportunity at the right time of day. Also close to the Museum. Not sure if it is worth the entry fee and maybe simply looking from the outside is the best option.

a well done replica! just come and see! The ropes, the wood, the shape, the curves and imagine it being in the water hit and shaken by sea waves.

I'm a huge fan of the Jack Aubrey books (authored by Patrick O'Brian) so any time I get the chance to go over an old sailing ship, I leap at it. And this one didn't disappoint. A beautifully built replica, she seems ready to put to sea. The self-paced audio tour was full of interesting and sometimes surprising detail. The... More

A fascinating insight into our pioneers and the conditions that they endured. A beautifully restored and maintained vessel.

Not a over priced attraction as the money does go towards upkeep. It has seen some major improvements over the years as i remember it as a gold coin donation, honor box back in 80's now comes with a historian to tell tales of construction.

Travel back in time and experience how it really was in the "good old times",- young and old can walk and climb the ship and see for themselves how small ships were and how difficult it must have been to travel in the olden days - it's a real "hands on" experience to be on the Amity and you can...

When I first saw the Brig Amity, what amazed me first was how well she looked, despite being located in a very public place with no security. Had this been in other cities, I'm sure the local yobs and vandals would have made their mark, but no, not here in Albany; she looks glorious! I love taking long exposure night... More
