Ideal-sized museum focusing on immigration via the Red Line in the early 1900's, but also addresses larger-scale immigration trends and topics on a global scale. Majority of labeling and sections were in local language, but the front desk was very kind and provided us with...More

Was so happy someone told us about this museum of European migration to the US and Canada. Great displays and fascinating stories. A bit out of the way, but worth the effort!!

The museum shows the exodus from Europe to the USA at the height of the Red Star Line, many well known names travelled through Antwerp to New York and onward; some of their stories are told.

The theme of the museum is migrations and if you are going for ship building you may be disappointed. There are English translations throughout although they are missing in some places which was a pity. The memorabilia was most interesting.

This museum brings interesting view into the history of migration with the boat to America in its time conditions, but also the link to other historical and nowadays (economical) migration is a good education, especially because of areas addressed that are not part of normal...More

This is possibly the best museum I've ever visited. It presents a restrained yot analytical view of the whole uncomfortable process of migration through which generations of Europeans from the past went in their search for a better life across the Atlantic. Sometimes quirky, sometimes...More
