Freedom Tower, Miami Reviews
Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College, 600 Biscayne Boulevard is a historical building that for most represents the location where Cubans, upon arrival during the early years of the exodus from Cuba, found a welcoming spot as they integrated into the fabric of South Florida. For me, it is so much more. As a young adult who traveled alone from Cuba, coming to the USA through a third country, Mexico in my particular case, the Freedom Tower represented the place I visited for the first 6 months in Miami on a weekly basis. Doctors / Dentists would see us for free to help out during the struggle to survive arriving in the USA without a single cent in our pockets. The building represents HOPE... acceptance... and welcoming to millions. Visit and learn about our history.
I think they should add more memorabilia from the times the Cuban refugees entered the Freedom Tower for their paperwork. The inside of the building is way too empty. I love the cleanliness though. Not worth the money if you pay full priced tickets in my opinion.
Not to be missed! Learn about the Tower's interesting history; very knowledgeable lady at the desk!👍Great presentation of the Cuban immigration history gives you a feel and transparency of the vibe of Miami which is so much Cuban to me. Learn about the waves of children from Cuba who arrived here and see how they had to adapt. The second floor is part modern art and part presentation to raise environmental awareness. Unfortunately the tower is not open to the public! Imagine standing on top and view the city from there! Maybe the city will open the tower in the near future; it would be certainly an asset and magnet for the tourists! Think about it city council!
As usual just like most "museums" documenting the history of anywhere they make a very small reference to the transatlantic slave trade in relation the history of Cuba. I have to say that I'm disappointed as knowing that my Grandfather who spoke Spanish and was literate there were approximately 3 pictures of people of colour throughout the main exhibition. That is of course until we went through to the alarmed section where the historic documents, paintings and hand written books dating from as far back as the 15th century were. Then there were overwhelming and heart breaking images of the way that our ancestors were treated. Overall disappointed as I didn't gain any further understanding of how my Grandfather and his forefathers may have contributed to Cuba and that section of the world before the exodus of 1952...
Look at the mesmerising beauty of Freedom Tower. It displays pride colours. It's beauty attracts everyone and visiting at this place was one of the most wonderful experience of my life.
