I was very impressed with the museum. It shows a lot about Muhammad Ali. The gift shop is great and you will definitely have to pick up a few things there.

One of the most amazing things I've done. Visiting the Muhammad Ali Center was on my bucket list of things to do and it did not disappoint. It was a lot of fun and was inspiring. First you pay downstairs, take the 4 story escalator to the 4th floor and watch a 12 minute movie on Ali's life. It will... More

The Center has a few pieces of memorabilia and areas to view some of "the Champs" great fights but that's about all of a museum that this intends to be. The concept is more of an experience, through words of Ali and others, videos and hands on activities to encourage the visitor to be all they can be and do... More

We didn't really know what to expect when we decided to visit the Muhammad Ali Center. Our family was very impressed. The entire facility was well set up. It provided lots of history and educational while also being though provoking in a way that lead to many discussions in our family about the past, present and future. Very interesting experience...

This is a really nice little museum and it pays tribute to the legend well. It's laid out nicely. Takes about 1.5 to 2 hours if you really look at everything.

It was a very educational walk through Ali's life. I liked the poetry pieces. Some of the rooms had too much going on. Most of it was pictures, videos and writings. I wish there had been more memorabilia from his life. I liked the room with activities for the kids. It was not very expensive so I guess it was... More

I was going to a wedding reception to one of my fathers bosses and they chose to make the reception at the Muhammad Ali center. I didn't think it was going to be anything special but when I got there I QUICKLY realized I was VERY WRONG! It was AMAZING and I socialized a bit and I went to check... More

Every human being should visit the Ali center. A man that is a loving, determined, talented Humanitarian. This center shows the struggles, triumphs, accomplishments, his love for the human spirit, and his true unselfish heart. It brings tears to my eyes writing about the experience. Free on his birthday in January!

I had no idea what to expect. Turns out to be a place where you are surrounded by the powerful messages of Muhammad Ali. Through videos, film footage, displays, relics etc. visitors become immersed in Ali's positive messages. Great place to visit - you learn about him but you will also be inspired.

This is my first one star rating. After considering cost, content and overall vibe, one star is where I ended up. The interior and exterior building architecture are so cool, I almost gave this 2 stars. Ultimately, it's how the content relates to Mr. Ali that counts. When my son and I got out of the car in the parking... More
