I really enjoyed the displays in the museum, especially as the history of Albany is presented with a focus on the Aboriginal involvement from start to finish. It gives a good overview if the area and its story and environment.

This review does not incorporate the Residency. Limited displays in the building, mostly photos. Nothing to see upstairs other than the Lighthouse lantern. Items for sale were of more interest than the displays. Worth a visit if trying to fill 30 minutes.

We popped in as we were passing and we're very glad that we did. It was very well laid out and gave a good history of the region. Well recommended, and it was free.

Compared to the ANZAC museum this place looks dated and tiny. However the national geographic photography exhibition was brilliant and worth stopping to see. The fact its donation only vs the fixed price of the aforementioned ANZAC museum you would expect less.

We got to see the National Geographic Photo Awards 2015. They were amazing and well worth the time. It was great to see such important works on display in a regional town. Spent an hour there and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We started our albany visit with a trip to the museum and it was well worth doing. The residency offers an onsight into Albany's history and the lands, people, flora and fauna in the area. The Brig Amity is definitely worth paying for, it was...More
