Follow in the footsteps of migrants in the Red Star Line Museum. From their departure from their country of origin, the long journey and their temporary stay in Antwerp to the crossing and the arrival in their new home country, the United States of America or Canada.

If the walls of this museum could talk, they would tell stories of high expectations and bitter disappointments, about adrenaline and sleepless nights, about children who followed their families and about families who were forced to leave their children behind. The old buildings of the shipping company make all these emotions and stories tangible and visible.

As the museum can get very busy, you may have to wait before visiting the museum. While you wait, you can enjoy the photo exhibition in The Shed (De Loods), chat with your friends in our nice museum café or check out the Red Star Line gadgets in our museum shop.
