The American Dream

The Swedish-American Line Göteborg - New York

Emigrants and luxury voyagers travelled on the Swedish-American Line's ships. The exhibition describes the history of the America ships and the people who sailed on them.  

This is an exhibition full of contrasts, based on life stories and events during the time of the Swedish-American Line. With its exciting idioms and new stories, it will both surprise and move you. Meet the people who made the voyage across the Atlantic as emigrants, luxury travellers and crew. See hitherto unreleased material from the exchange of prisoners during World War II and listen to the people behind the dream of America.
