Guided tour for adults

The guided tour through the Red Star Line Museum brings you to different destinations. From Warsaw you travel via Antwerp to America where, hopefully, a better life awaits you.

You will walk in the footsteps of emigrants and experience their enthusiasm and fear, their excitement and insecurity. You will experience the farewells and the obstacles as well as the adventure, the discoveries and the hopes for a new life on the other side of the ocean.

The museum tells the history of the emigrants based on human stories. It is an almost forgotten tale that you keep alive by listening and reacting, by adding to the stories and sharing them. At the Red Star Line Museum, you book a trip to the past as well as to today and the future.
