At the front entrance to the Maritime Museum, you can find the Welcome Walls. Constructed between 2004 and 2010, those who registered had their name, year of arrival and ship of passage engraved for posterity. Over 400 panels pay tribute to migrants who arrived by sea, and to the way they enriched their new home.
