School visits

A visit to the Red Star Line Museum is a journey into the past and an encounter with the present. Migration then was quite different from migration as we know it today. But the human aspect of the story is universal and timeless. A guide will take you and your students on an adventure in the museum and/or the city. En route you will get to meet the Red Star Line’s passengers.

Classes are welcome!

The Red Star Line Museum is an ideal destination for a surprising class trip on a fascinating and topical subject. The story of shipping company Red Star Line and its passengers is a trip to the past and a meeting with the present.

Several guided tours

The Red Star Line Museum offers various guided tours tailored to different levels of education. The tours are in line with the developmental objectives and attainment targets.

If you want to visit with your class, please book a time slot via rsl_balie@antwerpen.be.
