"I Fly Like a Butterfly, but I Sting Like a Bee". In the event you recall these familiar words, no doubt you recall this name. Showcased here is a tribute to a mighty warrior, of the likes, which only come once in a generation. His moves were legendary, his blows were also, life changing. For a lengthy period he was...

We were there during the Abbey Road tour, so there were TONS of people milling about. We didn't want to pay the high price for the tour, since walking through the lobby (and other free areas) afforded us a lot of information. Picked up some cool stuff in the gift shop.

We did not go early enough and missed many things. Go early to complete the tour. Interesting place for the entire family.

You enter via a very long escalator to the 5th floor where you get a fantastic view of the Ohio River and bridges. After a short video, you enter the main exhibit floor. Every part of this museum is fantastic and sets an example of how one man became the greatest and has inspired people around the world with his... More

We visited for two hours, and skimmed over most of the exhibits. We could have stayed for two weeks to read all of the information presented here. The centre has its own multi-storey car park. You get a ticket at the barrier as you arrive and pay as you leave. Very convenient. Take the lift to the entrance, and we... More

No one in my family is a boxing fan, especially my 14 year old daughter. However, we all found the museum interesting and easily spent a couple hours there. My 12 year old son was complaining how much he hated all the museums we were forcing him to go to, but even he got into the interactive displays and videos... More

This is a really nice and well laid out museum that covers pretty much all of Ali's life. Much better than I expected and my out of town guest loved it.

Comprehensive insight into the life and times of the man. On the boxing front there are articles and exhibits covering his career from his first fights right through with the option to see any of his fights on video. What we found the most impressive sections were exhibits on his early life which linked in with the civil rights issues... More
