Welcome family!

The Red Star Line Museum is the perfect destination for a family outing.

Children under 12 visit the museum for free and even grandma and granddad will receive a big discount on the admission fee.


Family suitcase

Request your ticket and your Suitcase full of objects from the desk and off you go! Every object in the suitcase tells a story. Follow your eyes, ears and nose through the galleries and find the hidden stories.

Suited for children between the ages of 7 and 12 years but younger brothers and sisters can also join in the fun and explore the museum.


The Red Star Line at home?

You can prepare your visit by downloading colouring pages.pdf here. We also have a range of fun gadgets for young sailors in the museum shop.


Additional facilities

The visitor’s space welcomes smaller children and is equipped with nappy-changing facilities. 

You can take your stroller into the museum but in order to not cause any hindrance to the other visitors we would like you to consider alternatives such as a baby sling. You can safely store your stroller in the visitor’s space.

The De Loods museum café serves child-friendly snacks and drinks.
