The Red Star Line Museum might be one of Antwerp’s newest museums, but it celebrates the heritage of an ocean line that dates back more than a century. The Red Star Line was a crucial transportation artery for European families seeking a new life in America from the 1870s to the 1930s, and thus the Red Star Line Museum was founded in 2013 to chronicle the stories of those myriad families and their journey.

The new volume, The Red Star Line Museum, Antwerp, supports this chronicle by revealing some of these stories through images and text. Featuring actual accounts by immigrant families and their personal photographs, The Red Star Line Museum reveals across its 100-plus pages the universal hardships and joys of the turn-of-the-century immigrant. This thoughtful volume is now available in both digital and print format at
