The museum is housed in Het Redershuis, an imposing building dating from 1896. Eugeen Van Mieghem [1875-1930] was fascinated by the thousands of emigrants who sailed to America with the legendary shipping company Red Star Line of Antwerp, in search of happiness.
Eugeen Van Mieghem (1875-1930) was a draughtsman and depicted people in the port; using various techniques he captured their lives and characters. On display in the museum are 150 of his works, as well as works by other by Antwerp artists.
Visitors will gain an excellent insight into the world of this very introverted artist, whose work is once again in the spotlight in Belgium and abroad.

Antwerp is a vibrant city. And all those residents and visitors who bring so much life to the city also require a lot of parking for their cars. In order to give everyone an equal chance at a parking spot, there is paid parking in many places throughout Antwerp.
Time flies in Antwerp. Spend yours wisely and buy your Antwerp City Card.
Antwerp is a pocket-sized city. Many of the attractions are within walking or biking distance of each other. Another way of getting around the city is on the trams and buses of De Lijn. Tip: buy your tram or bus ticket in a point of pre-sale (newsagent’s, supermarket, the vending machines at the various stops or in the visitor centres of Visit Antwerp), where tickets are cheaper.
