Family suitcase

A game for families with children 6 years old and up. Carry out various assignments and learn more about the emigrants.

In the family game, you'll follow the story of Bessie, a 9-year-old girl, who travels to America with her family. In the museum, you're on your way with assignments and fun facts about the Red Star Line. Each time you'll read a piece of the family story, and you'll have to draw, write or tell a story.
