Permanent collection

If these walls could talk, we would probably be surprised about the stories they could share. Two million passengers travelled to America on the Red Star Line ships. Explore the museum section by section.

A collection of stories

It’s all about the stories in The Red Star Line Museum. The stories of the passengers who travelled to America with the Red Star Line, in search of happiness and a better future. All these stories tell the history behind the Red Star Line.

Renewal of the permanent exhibition

In 2018, we added new stories to the permanent exhibition about the arrival on Ellis Island. A new scenography shows objects and testimonies filmed in America.


The collection contains historical testimonies and documents, but also contemporary stories about migration. And works by Antwerp artists for whom migration was an inspiring theme.
