For many years this building was the "Cuban Refugee Center", this was the placed where Cuban political exiles came to be processed as they arrive in this line of LIBERTY. It served as processing center not only to be checked by doctors and other personal services but also provided information to the American government in other areas

This where all Cuban immigrants were processed when they first came to Miami. Worth seeing, again you can see it on the Hop on Hop off bus and get off to wander around.

This historical building sits directly across American Airlines Arena on Biscayne Boulevard. It has been fitted to be a Museum, and as of the moment, there are temporary art exhibitions on offer. The Museum opens at noon, and not everyday, so be aware in case you wish to see and visit it on a day it might be closed. Entry... More

It's a beautiful historic building well located in downtown; however, the presentation inside could be improved! There is a huge room empty showing just a beautiful mural! An empty room does not give a good view or sensation for a tourist visiting a museum! There are several good cuban artists who could be exposed in that area! You may reply... More

Freedom tower - a landmark building on Biscayne Boulevard. We drove from the Biltmore hotel, and had the effect of "deja vu". And not by accident! The fact that "Biltmore'" in Coral Gables in 1926 and the "Freedom tower" in 1925, was built by one architect - Leopold Schulze. It`s interesting that "Biltmore" shifted "Freedom" from the pedestal of the... More

This icon provides an interesting drive-by in the downtown area. Not much more to see from what I could tell.

This art deco building has served several purposes during its almost century of existence, but it is known as the Freedom Tower because many Cubans passed through it when escaping Cuba in the early 1960s. The exhibit in the building provides a great overview of the Cuban-American experience in Miami. There are also art exhibits with no connection to the... More

Great place to visit to find out a little about the Cuban emigrants. If you have a relative or you are an emigrant yourself, you will relate to so many of the stories there. Quite emotional. Free entrance.
