The legendary shipping company with the red star in its flag transported more than two million passengers from the city by the River Scheldt to America: poor European migrants in search of the American dream, but also wellheeled passengers on a pleasure or business trip to New York.

The old warehouses on the banks of the river Scheldt have been developed into a commemorative site and museum, a topical place for reflection with a contemporary approach to emigration.
