The building is already part of the old Red Star Line and makes the Museum perfect at that historical spot. You have to lock up big bags - wasnt a problem for us the locker is downstairs. The exhibition is also in english but you...More

I've visited this museum a few times now and I'm always overwhelmed by the complete image this museum offers: from history of migration to the Red Star Line itself, to personal stories etc. An ideal counterpart to the Ellis Island Museum in New York and...More

Luckily, we learned this at the TI in the train station and saved a fruitless trip. Several other Antwerp museums are also closed— fashion museum, no show at MAS— so check before you go

I didn't really expect so much of the visit, but it was actually quite an entertaining museum due to the many details and stories woven in. In some ways it was a bit much display and little 'experience', and the many videos are a bit...More

This is a great experiential museum that shows the flow of immigrants who departed from Belgium to North America. Not just Belgians, but all the people who flowed here from Europe and I think North Africa. Great for kids and adults.

Excellent place to spend a couple of hours. Many stories of those who left for the new world. Many did well - many didn't. Very moving in parts.

Yes, the Red Star museum is closed until September 21st. I would check a few days after that, since there is a lot of road works in the area.
