Opening Red Star Line Museum

From 1800, millions of people left Europe to start new lives in America. The Red Star Line steamers alone carried 2 million people from Antwerp between 1873 and 1934 and this new museum allows you to discover their stories. Follow the migrant’s journeys and learn the history of one of the Atlantic's most incredible liner companies in this new museum.

To celebrate the opening of the museum on 28 September a three day festival of events is planned.

Located in the historic sheds of the Red Star Line, the Red Star Line Musuem is 3km from the Astoria Hotel (catch the number 17 bus from around the corner (Pelikaanstraat) direct to the docklands area).
