“Phenomenal collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is a great museum with an impressive number of artefacts.

There are constant documentaries running and several levels to discover.

A must do even if you aren't a boxing fan.

“Inspiring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

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.

“The Best Part is the View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

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. I did not find it worth the admission.
