This is a wonderful museum in downtown Louisvile. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The exhibits were wonderful and there was a lot to see. It covered much more than Ali, the boxer but had great information about his humanitarian work and even some Louisville history. The full size ring and shadow boxing exhibit were very cool. It's a...

A must for any boxing fan. Lots of great historic information, cool displays. I liked the chance to see how hard my punch is and to shadow box with Ali.

I followed Ali from the time he began and was very impressed with what he has accomplished through his life time.

What was good was learning about his will to do what he thought was right over what people thought. Loved it, learned a lot about the man.

This multi-level museum is awesome for sports enthusiasts, or those like me who are vaguely away of Ali's place in history. I was enthralled by all the stories, videos, memorabilia, and interactive exhibits present. The only thing I would change was that we didn't give ourselves enough time to really take our time and browse each thing. The museum closed... More

What an incredible experience, absolutely loved experiencing this! Brilliantly put-together, world class in every respect. Shows aspects of his life from the early days including footage of all his fights. Well worth the visit!

Beautiful building right on the river. This was actually inspirational and thought-provoking. It was so much more than boxing. It was a great review of history and an examination of living by your beliefs.

This is a centre rather than a museum though the lines overlap given Ali's involvement with civil rights etc. Having been through many States and museums, this one is very reasonable, only $5 for students. The layout is a tad confusing - the self guide leaflet begins on the 5th floor and winds down to ground again. Its designed in... More

I really enjoyed visiting the Muhammad Ali Center. The exhibits were well done. I especially enjoyed the many interactive exhibits. I think the shadow boxing was my favorite. This is a must see when you visit Louisville. Ali was much more than a boxer.

Loved the museum! It was entertaining for the entire family. Children were able to "shadow box" with the shadow of Muhammad Ali. There was even a boxing ring inside with boxing tips from his daughter Laila Ali. It renewed my memory and respect for Mr. Ali.
