Reasonable entry price although have a look at the free museum (*multiple buildings) next door first if you have limited time. Kids enjoyed it and was also educational

Pleased we took the time to look through the goal. Was surprised actually how small it was but as pointed out to us it was in early settlement and nuambers were not high.

You have to visit at least once when you visit Albany, the museum is chock full of history and the building itself located conveniently on the foreshore near the Brig Amity which I also recommend you see, plenty of parking. If you're a history buff...More

We love looking back in time and how things used to be. Had a great chat with the staff, they knew a lot too. Walking around the museum there were a few surprises. Lots of fun!
