“La Torre de la Libertad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I was "processed" here as a Cuban refugees in 1962. It used to be the Miami News building a long time before that. Now it belongs to Miami Dade College or the City, not sure, but the building has new life now and they have interesting exhibits and events. It is a part of Miami history and easy to visit, right on Biscayne boulevard. Call ahead and find out what is going on.

“Historical and Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Freedom Tower stands proudly in Miami! It is a dedication to the Cuban people who were forced to leave their county and who found freedom and peace in the United States. It is a lovely ediface which reminds us of a difficult period if our history.

“A must see when in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

the historic tower once used for the cubans that arrive in the '60s, now hosts a museum. Located in the heart of downtown at the entrance of the Port. Good alternative to visit after a cruise

“Needs more attactions / venues. Beautiful construction, history.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

I went to see a art display inside hosted by Miami Dade College. It was very interesting. The lobby section has a very historic feel to it. The second floor (if you can sneak up there) has a beautifully hidden attraction: A huge wall mural. When I saw it, it needed restoration. I hope they restore it someday. It's memorable. Other than that, the building is empty most of the year.
