This was so much more than I expected. The Muhammad Ali Center not only shows the physical growth of this man, it highlights his spiritual growth as well, leaving the visitor with powerful "food for thought".

We had no idea how much was in this wonderful museum and wished we had allowed more time. Please leave yourself at least 2 hours to really experience it fully. A fabulous tribute to an amazing man

We took the whole family ranging in ages 11-49. We all enjoyed the experience. The exhibits are interactive and do a nice job celebrating the life of Ali. A top notch museum worth visiting.

The focus of this is strongly on his religious beliefs. The first thing you see is a drawing he did equating Christianity to slavery

The layout of the museum is excellent. You stop on the top floor and wind your way down following Muhammad Ali's life. I gained a great appreciation for the choices he made and the sacrifices he made to hold true to his beliefs. Great way...More

This was my second visit. I continue to learn more with each visit. I felt even more honored to visit prior to Mr. Ali's passing. A wonderful tribute.

We bought ours at the door. Probably a good idea to buy in advance,as large groups are possible to be there.
