Today visited the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp. It tells the story of the European migration to America - Canada and some countries in South America.
The building that houses the museum are the actual derpating hangars the Red Star Line shipping compagny. Her the immigrants got their tickets, medicals a shower ans were put in quarantine. It is a museum of hope and in fact it is very actual to date , because worldwide there are still many people on the move. Here are some impressions of the museum.
The atraction point on the outside of the building, a terrace shaped as a steamships chimney.You can climb it and have a nice view over the city.
Always on the move, still today we are travelling or migrating to new places, connect the museum between then the past and the present.
Shipping manifests and lists of passengers.
A small tempory exhibition of people who went to live in Argentina.
Just a few of the questions an immigrant had to answer.
So this was a small impression of this museum, I know there is a sistermuseum in the US. If anybody went there like to see the pictures.
