Please note that the Museum of Art and Design and MDC Special Collections are currently closed while the Freedom Tower undergoes renovations.

Acknowledged as one of the best art museums to visit in Miami, the Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College is located in the National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower in Downtown Miami. MOAD offers groundbreaking exhibitions and programs that aim to foster a reimagined Miami. Exploring the challenges and opportunities we face locally and globally, MOAD convenes artists, designers, and thinkers to address the urgent questions of our time. As the flagship museum of Miami Dade College, MOAD strives to be a catalyst for action and a place that empowers people to remake their city. MOAD follows the College’s lead in operating across Miami with its Museum Without Boundaries initiative, which takes place in city neighborhoods and invites everyone to be a part of the conversation.

As stewards of the Freedom Tower and the MDC Special Collections, MOAD upholds the integrity of the building’s history.
