Freedom Tower

Freedom Tower Miami is one of the first US skyscrapers built in 1925. The building of 14 floors and a height of about 80 meters with the existing lighthouse on the dome shakes the imagination so far, although the Freedom Tower is already not the tallest building in Miami.

The lighthouse really illuminates Biscayne Bay at night, and it is an impressive and fascinating sight even for a modern person who is used to light and laser shows. Really amazingly beautiful. The picture of the bay is impressive, the accuracy of calculations and the colossal nature of the architect's bold idea.

The highlight of the tower itself was organized relatively recently. Modern lighting uses spotlights on LED elements, which underlines the architect’s desire to remain at the cutting edge of technological progress.

Freedom Tower Interesting Facts

The Freedom Tower in Miami is made in a unique synthetic modern style, successfully combining the features of late classicism, American modernity, striking motifs of Spanish architecture - all note the visual resemblance to the famous Giralda Tower in Spanish Seville.

The name "Tower of Freedom" was not immediately. The building was built for the editors of Miami News and until 1957 served as the central office of the newspaper. Then the property passed to the government and in the skyscraper they arranged a center for registration and distribution of assistance to refugees from Cuba. President Kennedy pledged asylum and US citizenship to all Cuban refugees. Accordingly, the "Freedom Tower" by association with the "Island of Freedom", as they called Cuba. Here they handed out medical assistance, listened to horrific stories told by refugees to obtain citizenship. We do not know how true these stories are, because the stories had a very specific purpose. But the Americans believed and even staged a museum.

Probably everyone remembers the stunning photographs of the Freedom Tower in Miami with colossal green crocodiles on the yellow facades. We owe this incredible performance to the Art Basel World Arts Festival, which is held in Miami in Wynwood, literally a couple of blocks from Freedom Tower. Crocodiles on the Freedom Tower are part of the scenery of the Basel Museum Festival. Usually there are no crocodiles on the Tower.

Important information for visitors to the Freedom Tower

The Miami Dade College Art Library on the ground floor deserves close attention. In addition, it makes sense to consider the extremely interesting wooden interiors of early America.

The museum of Cuban emigration is open only from 01:00 pm to 06:00 pm from Wednesday  to Friday. The exhibition is quite pathetic, and it will be interesting to ethnographers, advertisers, artists and historians.

Exhibitions that take place in the museum can have their own schedule. There are really interesting themed exhibitions with a unique set of exhibits and scientific research. Be sure to check the schedule of such activities in advance on the site.

Freedom Tower often takes such significant expositions as the exhibition of works by Salvador Dali, Leonardo Da Vinci, Goia.
