Message of peace is quite moving. Exhibits are quite professional. Staff is friendly and helpful. Director is engaged with the visitors. Everyone should go and bring their family with them.

The information content and quotes from Ali and many others is exceptional. The information booths put a lot of Ali's life into the bigger context of racism, war, etc. Largely balanced view of Ali. It doesn't try to sweep things like his arrogance under the rug. Overall, well done!

This is a great presentation of all that Muhammad Ali is and what he has become as a person who wants to bridge gaps and seeks peace. It provides a fantastic journey for you to see what shaped Ali the boxer, the man and the larger than life persona that was impacted by so many different and at times conflicting... More

The Muhammad Ali Center is a "must-visit" when you're in Louisville. Not only does it detail the life of the champion boxer, it also gives a historical perspective of the time in which he became a champion. There are some really candid quotes along the walls of the museum. Be sure to check out the gift shop - lots of... More

Very scenic balcony view at the wedding reception! The event was top-notch from everything we experienced. Considered having my 50th birthday party there, but chose the rooftop of 21c instead.

This give a great overview of Ali's life and his morals. There is cool memorabilia from his boxing days and great videos of his interviews and matches. Only complaint is that it is a little run down. Some of the interactive parts don't work anymore.

Most of the exhibits are stationary plaques. They need many more actual artifacts to make the admission worthwhile. The best part of the museum is the exterior of the building itself as viewed from a distance. Very neat. The view of the river and the west end of the city from the third floor is very pretty.
