Ali has had such a varied history from being Clay, to opposing the Vietnam War, to coming back and becoming a champion, to his great service work.

Very interactive and a great place to host an event. Kids and adults will have a fun time exploring the museum and learning about the life of Muhammad Ali.

This place gives any one who has lived the Ali life or is in any wa interested in boxing the chills. Lots of cool memorabilia, moving movies and a very good look into his live and the battles he had to face mostly out side the ring! Place worth the visit when you are in town.

This is a beautiful facility with plenty of boxing experience, and articles. The opening film was especially good and gave a glimpse of the discrimination Muhammad Ali faced. However the other exhibits designed to show "separation of the races" needed more explanation (Had we not had an older person along to explain the situation, the children (middle school age) would have missed the ideas, and not realized how far we have come.)

The Muhammed Ali Center provides a wonderful exposure to this iconic American known as "The Greatest." While it was certainly enjoyable and the museum provides a reminiscence of the turbulent times Muhammed Ali grew up in, It taught me nothing new and avoided much of the controversy surrounding the man. Muhammed Ali is now revered throughout the world, but during his prime, he was one of the most polarizing figures in American history.
