This is a very educational and very informative adventure. You get an audio guide to take you on a journey of what it would have been like, for people traveling on vessels like this. Well worth it.

$5 each adult was money well spent. Audio guides given to each person so we can hear different parts regarding the vessel, it's voyage, cargo and passengers. Strongly recommend a visit.

You're on a replica historical boat which is nestled in dry land overlooking the ocean. $5 gives you access to said boat and useful information via an audio device whilst you explore what it would have been like back in the seafaring days of yesteryear. It's informative and very educational. Be wary of young unsupervised children on school holidays though,... More

This ship is well worth having a good look at. It is so small. It makes you realize just what headships folks went through.

$5 / adult to enter the replica brig Amity in the Albany Historic Precinct. You can pay at the desk in the museum, or pay (cash) on board. The volunteer for our visit was John, he gave a great run-down of the ship's history and then handed over the audio-guide listening devices. We wandered about at our leisure, listening to... More

Although it was interesting to experience how the prisoners were transported there was no real sense of the history of how and why many of the prisoners ended up on these ships....some for stealing a loaf of bread to feed their desperate families.

Look to be honest, it is a little old school, but to see how it was a couple of hundred years ago, like this tour shows, is brilliant. By today's standards, it is lacking in technology, but it still give a great insight into how it was for these sailors

For a small fee you can board and roam around this historical replica. We were provided with an electronic (audio) tour guide which allowed us to listen to personalised information 'recorded' by the crew, and information about the ship and the voyage. Relatively inexpensive. May not be safe if you have young children or are elderly as the ladders leading... More
