“A touch of recent history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The visitors centre is run by volunteers who are dedicated to making sure that you miss nothing of Albany's limited history. When we were there they had an exhibition of Antarctic exploration with many artefacts and lots of original film. A small donation is requested upon entry, usually a 'Gold Coin' request, for those like me who did not know, that's a dollar coin or a two dollar coin! The 'Old Goal' and the oldest house on Albany are also both very much worth a visit.

“Very Helpfull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The lady that helped us was very informative. Gave us maps, pamphlets and ideas on how to see as much as possible in the time we had. You could see that she loved her job and Albany. Promoted Albany very well.
