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.
I am one of the restoration team Beauchamp comp Also organized the first. Opening party for the first race car in miami. On the top of this wonderful landmark. So we shall win for funds to keep it restored and great museum. Must visit
This museum was very beautiful and inspirational. I had a great time looking at the history of the migrants who came to the United States.
The Freedom Tower is considered Miami's Ellis Island, a butter yellow beacon in Downtown Miami across from Bayside Marketplace, served as an immigration processing center. Excellent attraction!
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.
