“Olympic Gold Medal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Learned a lot about this incredible person, his values and his humble beginnings. Seeing his Olympic Gold Medal and watching and reliving some of his moments of victory were great since it was a walk down memory lane. The place does provide several stark reminders of injustice in this world and an opportunity for somber reflection.

“Muhammad Ali a very complex man, museum explores his life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

The museum not only shows episodes from Ali's life, it also tells you about the main tenents of his life, and shows how he was an interesting voice at at important time in American history.

Ali is a man of many layers: a man of peace who fights for a living.

The full life of muhammad ali, the times he lived in, and his impact is covered in multimedia shows and interactive exhibits. It's almost too much to write about. Just go.

“A must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

If you are an Ali fan or not this is simply the best living museum I have ever visited. The social history is cleverly interwoven with boxing history, first class.
