“Doing the tourist thing”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Really good to see this in place and adds to the things to se and do whilst in Albany. Worth a visit to get the feel of what a hell hole these small ships that traveled the world and took years to complete were like.

“Better value than expected”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We all, old and young enjoyed this. Being able to go below deck was a surprise, and a welcome one. They also have a personalized commentary that you can list to if you like

“good trip out with the kids, informative”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We stopped at the Brig Amity after a day out at Whaleworld.
$10 for a family pass which was pretty reasonable, this includes an audio commentary through handheld speakers that change as you reach certain points around the ship.

The kids enjoyed the Amity, you get to climb down 3 levels on the ship and get an insight into the cramped & harsh conditions experienced.

The man selling the tickets was very friendly & chatty.

Good trip, especially with kids who love ships.

“Great insight into Albany's history”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Very worthwhile visit to the Brig Amity. Climb aboard and pay the small entry fee and you are given a handset with recorded commentary for a self tour of the ship. Head below deck to try to imagine what it must have been like for the 60 or so male convicts crammed into the space. Plenty of other interesting facts on the commentary.
