    Six Argentinians about their roots
    Thursday 05 October 2017 - Sunday 15 April 2018 from 10:00 to 17:00
    Families, Individual visitors, Youngsters
    This autumn the Red Star Line Museum tells a story about roots, recollections and Belgian migration to Argentina based on the individual stories of six Argentinians. What do they still know about their family history? How do they keep the memories of Belgium, of themselves or of their ancestors alive?
  • Due to updates to the fixed exhibit and construction works to the shed, the museum will be closed from 18 June to 21 September 2018.
  • Here you will find an overview of all the information and activities to plan your visit.

  • Story
    Do you have a story that is related to the history of the Red Star Line, a Red Star Line passenger, or to past or contemporary migration? We want to hear it!
  • Millions of passengers travelled with Red Star Line and told stories about their journeys to their children and grandchildren. You can read some of the most beautiful stories here. Maybe you have a past or present migration story of your own, which you would like to tell us. Share it with us via ‘Your story’.
  • The Red Star Line Museum invites you on an exciting voyage. Discover the story of the shipping company, the city of Antwerp and its harbour. Above all, discover the emigrants’ stories. Perhaps it is your story too. You may recognise yourself in a person; you might recognise a place, a voyage, an arrival or departure, maybe even a new beginning. Welcome aboard!
