Arrival in the New World

Arrival in the New World

After the guided tour you can take a closer look around the ship at your leisure. As you exit you will pass through the Arrivals Hall. This exhibit shows the experience of newly arrived immigrants to North America. How they struggled to make their way in a strange new land, and how they would eventually prosper.

Free from the tyranny of hunger, Irish immigrants went on to become one of the great success stories of America and Canada. Their achievements, both historic and modern, are commemorated in the Irish America Hall of Fame.
