Our 10yr old love doing the tour on the Amity so much she asked if she could go again the next day. Listening to the tour is a great way to immerse yourself into life at sea many years ago.

This is a great way to spend an afternoon - or even whole day. Start off on the Brig then move over to the museums - skip (or walk your choice) up York Street or Lower Stirling Terrace for lunch. Then go back and have...More

Very nice to see. There is an audio tour that really guides you through the ship in an interactive manner. Beware: a ship has ladders, not stairs. Always face the ladder when going up/down, else you might fall. Yes, I saw a woman fall down...More

Reached the area overlooking this brig via the main road into Albany along the seafront. Just on the left you can drive up to a viewing point, and just a bit further on you see on your left this wonderful old brig. A very attractive...More

What a brilliant way of explaining all about this convict ship. You have your own hand held device for listening to the history of the ship as you explore it above and below. Well done.

Loved looking around this old ship the audio information was good and informative. Below decks makes you wonder how did the men etc manage in such cramped conditions. Easy to bang your head if not careful, but well worth a visit.

We didn’t take the tour, but spent an enjoyable 1/4 hour wandering the deck and taking photos as part of our tour of the museum

A far more interesting attraction than I expected. Great to be able to go below deck and have a look at the conditions that those arriving to our shores experienced. Good audio tour that provided information at your own pace. Well worth the $5.

This was excellent to be able to walk through the vessel, just be warned that it is small and tight in the hold and you will bump your head trust me, the kids seem to love climbing through the decks and listening to the record...More

To think that this was the ship that first settled in Albany all those years ago, even though it was called Fredericktown back then. The Amity is well worth a visit.
