Only had a short time to walk through the museum, but loved the layout. There is a lot of historical information to read on the tour. Highly suggest planning at least an hour to an hour and a half.

I was very happy to see such a beautiful representation of Ali's life. I am sure that you will not want to pass up this educational opportunity and moving stories of his life! And it is a very reasonable cost.

The Muhammad Ali Center was mostly videos and reading. There a couple of interactive things to do, like speed bag punching, and following along with a video of fighting techniques. I must say it was very informative about his life. I learned a lot about his positive impact on the world.

Don't miss this wonderful tribute to Muhammad Ali. Interactive, innovative, informative and imaginative, this center illuminates all aspects of Muhammad Ali's life. You don't have to be a boxing fan to appreciate the greatness of the man. Make this a must see stop.

Our family with one 13 yo son wasn't sure what to expect when we got here. And we were blown away! From the interactive exhibits to the history of a truly great man, we spent more time in here than we thought we would and we were so impressed. What a study Ali was in finding yourself and your purpose... More

There are several floors of videos, photos, memorabilia, and interviews around the life and times of Mohammed Ali - much more than just a boxer. Follow the fascinating life of this history making American. His positions on life, religion and politics sounded extreme at the time, but resonate clearer today.

I love this Museum. It is a great addition to Museum Row in Louisville. We were super excited when the museum opened and we had a monument to an incredible man. The place is well laid out. My husband wanted to go here for his father's day outing. Make a day of it and eat at some of the NU... More

My husband and I went in 2010 while visting our gran children. I loved that we could sit in front of screens and see clips ofhis fights. My husband "jumped in the ring" with The Greatest! We never spent so much time in one museum. We could have stayed all day.

Recently visited the Muhammad Ali Center. It was open for a nearby event so we were not able to visit all areas. It seems to be a pretty comprehensive museum about the life of one of boxing's greatest. I should probably say I am not a boxing fan. If you were a fan of the sport it would probably be... More

My son really wanted to visit this place for the past two years. We went right after Ali's passing on a Friday. It was very easy to park and the parking was fairly cheap. The entrance was nice, especially considering the construction work going on outside. It was not crowded and was very easy to move around which was a... More
