Ocean liners were ships of transport for immigrants and machines of leisure, status, and national prestige. This section of On the Water: Stories from Maritime America, an online exhibition from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, focuses on the roles that these ships played during the massive immigration of people to the United States from both Europe and Asia during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Students will also learn how passenger liners such as the Mauretania, Titanic, and the S.S. United States became a popular, and sometimes dangerous, mode of leisure travel for those who could afford it. National Museum of American History
