“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is one the muesum where the whole family had fun. It looks small from inside but has multiple floors and you could see different aspect of Muhammad Ali along with shadow boxing with him and practice few punches.

“Very interesting”

If you are a fan of boxing or you really like Muhammad Ali, this place is a must visit. If you don't like boxing--it's just OK.

“Worthwhile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

In Louisville for Final 4 Volleyball match and stopped by this museum. It was a great reminder of Ali's life - some things I either did not remember or never knew about him. The exhibition is a bit repetitious. Some of the information and even some of the photographs and videos are repeated throughout. Maybe it is to make the visit a bit longer. My husband and I agreed the Museum would be just fine without those. Still, worth going. Just know that, after while, you can skip some of the content when you see that you've already heard/seen it.
