We could only see it from the outside, and they are doing renovations on it at the moment. Not sure when it will be open.

Very well done replica that gives several feel of what it was like to be onboard. Very informative and well put together information. It should be a must do in any visit to Albany.

A compact way to get a bit of WA history and some idea of what life at sea in the early 18th century was like....

We had an interesting chat with the guide as well as the self-guided tour. Amazing to think such a tiny ship had so many people on board. Can't imagine how brave those early settlers and explorers were to set off into the unknown on tiny little boats....

Spent a good hour looking round the Brig. The guide on the Brig was very informative and very pleasant. Just glad I didn't have to sail in it.

This ship gave us a good insight into how people travelled, lived and sailed. The commentary was very interesting,

The history is interesting, but the presentation is not really brilliant. We chose not to go on board but to just read the information boards surrounding it. I don't think an entry fee is warranted.

A reproduction vessel which does have some areas that need repair due to wet rot but it is an interesting attraction. Go back far enough and many of our ancestors left the UK to another country in vessels just like this. Makes you think what 2 months at sea would be like. Worth a visit.

This historic brig surprises the visitor with its small size. It reminds those who board the simple and yet dangerous conditions that were endured by our early explorers.
