Taking a tour of the Amity is a must - as is minding your head when you go below decks.The audio wands provided give a great insight into the history of the Amity and the conditions on board. Well worth a visit.

A visit to the Amity highlights to young people a valuable lesson in the hardships and bravery of English sailors in the early settlement of Albany. The brig is in very good condition and a great tourist stop. Interesting information is availble on board.

If you are in the area to visit the museum and the Old Prison you may as well come on board and check out the Brig Amity - only takes a few minutes

Something different. Kids enjoyed this. Slightly tight and dark below deck. Provided real insights as to how a ship was run on sea. Very informative commentary and realistic segregation between captain, deck hands and slave sleeping quarters. Worth visiting, especially on a windy rainy Albany...More
