We visited this alongside the local museum - there is just a five dollar entry fee. Perhaps it loses a little something as a replica rather than an original restoration, but it is still charming and well worth a visit. The most startling thing though is just how small it was!

It's amazing to see how the sailors bunked for weeks at a time at sea. With almost all areas being accessible, you really feel like you were there. Great for kids to explore the nooks and crannies of the ship. The audio device could have better (louder) volume or a headset, but very informative. Easy to get around, though the... More

THE anity is steeped in Albany's history being the 1st ship to sail in. Its 3 layered decks house a great insight into the sailing of that time, Shes not huge but shes beautiful, even if she is a replica. Cost to go aboard was $4 . Just remender to Watch your Head on the second deck,, i was soon... More

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 ship finding out so much info. Absolutely amazing and worst the whole $5.

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 full of amazing information that will keep visitors occupied for hours. No worries about the... More

We were looking forward to visiting The Brig Amity, and so were our children, ages 7 and 1. As we struggled walking up the small hill with our toddler up to the Amity, our 7 year old eagerly ran ahead unto the boat. She was unaware, much like we were, that a ticket would need to be purchased to gain... More

Not quite sure why, but someone dumped this replica of an old ship near the bottom of the main street in Albany. That said it makes a nice little attraction which takes about 40 minutes to go through with a basic audio guide ($5). A good little attraction for those looking for something extra to do in Albany.

Run by volunteers (who are super friendly and willing to chat about the local area), this is an excellent tour to take. It is self guided with recordings to listen to at each point of interest on the boat. I was interested to hear that when they came ashore they treated the local Aboriginal group with friendliness and as the... More
