Tour takes you through the champion boxer's life from Cassius Clay to world icon Muhammad Ali. Great photos, artifacts and videos of his outstanding career. Tons of information. An entertaining experience.

This is a large building with comprehensive displays and film shows depicting all of Ali's professional life, as well as his other contributions to society. Leave plenty of time to see the whole museum, which is definitely worth a visit.

Stopped here because a fellow traveler wanted to see the center. We quickly found that this was an excellent experience. There is a lot more to Muhammad Ali than we knew. Not only was he a fighter, but also a humanitarian and thinker. This is an attraction that is a must see if you are in Louisville.

The museum was done very well and is a very good testament to the life and career of Muhammad Ali. The exhibits are interesting and well worth a visit.

This museum not only tells the life of a great boxer, but also the struggles of minorities in America. Watch Ali's life on film and the film projected on a boxing canvass of his greatest fights. many interesting artifacts. Not much to buy in the gift shop.

This is a fantastic center and so informative. I left feeling so inspired. I loved that parts of the center are interactive, always makes learning more fun! After here I drove to 3302 Grand Avenue to see where Muhammed Ali lived during his childhood, also worth a visit.

My wife and I visited as part of a road trip round the US Heartland. Muhammad Ali was born in 1942, two years before me and I have been a fan of his since I was about 16 years old. Being English, I well remember the night he fought Henry Cooper in 1965 when our 'Enery had him on the... More
