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

Early morning stroll and great photo opportunity on an overcast morning. Waiting until sleepy Albany wakes up. Nothing open before 9 am including cafe's.

This was fascinating & extremely informative. I learnt a lot & it was definitely value for money. It may be difficult for some people to manage the ladders though.
