It was an amazing experience I learned so much and it did not cost that much to experience the different levels of this gallery with hands on portions and videos

This was a very good place to visit. Very informative and a little fun mixed in. My husband and I learned a lot during the tour. It is self guided and very easy to navigate. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Louisville KY.

My kids thought they would be bored but they were wrong. Excellent displays and videos. You can sit in stadium style seats and watch complete fights from Ali's prime.

The Muhammad Ali Center is a large museum on the banks of the Ohio River. Even if you are not a boxing fan, it gives one a clear and informative understanding of an amazing personality who stood by his convictions and beliefs. It also provides a wonderful perspective on segregation in the United States and the Vietnam War. The fifth... More

This center is about Ali the man and his personal beliefs outside the ring. While boxing plays a role in this Center it is by no means a shrine to Ali's boxing accomplishments. Know this going in and you will enjoy your visit even more. I'm 58 years old and was a teenager during Ali's career. I'm not sure if/how... More

This is tough to rate. Did I leave the Center feeling happy? Probably not....but it made you think and gave you insight into many of the cultural and racial events that occurred at that time, many of which are still going on today. Muhammad Ali's amazing life and career are, of course, the main focal points. Many of the exhibits... More

My husband and sons are avid Ali fans so on our trip to the beach we to the scenic route through Louisville and went to the Center. A little skeptical if my daughters would enjoy the facility but we were pleasantly surprised! There were interactive things for all ages, boxing fans, Ali fans, and siblings. I would highly recommend this... More
