I doubted this at first but wow! We did the audio tour and absolutely loved it. We enjoyed not only the audio, but finding each audio position. The ship is beautiful and we had a blast going through the bunks and the bottoms of the...More

The replica of Amity Brig is a mind-opening experience for all. While kids will love clambering around the ship, which is a veritable maze and marvel of planning and building, adults will learn a lot about the history of sea travel. Nearby, the museums are...More

For a very cheap (compared to many attractions) fee you can spend a good hour looking around the small ship. Using the provided audio tour you get a sense of the life that early settlers and pioneers must have endured. Very informative and the staff...More
