“Very moving, educational, and relaxing.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

This experience is a must when in Louisville. I found the center calming, relaxing, and very interesting.
The center staff is very good and knowledgable.
I went back a second time to the gift shop, which is full of nice gifts and great inspirational items.
I learned a lot about Ali and about why he made the choices he has made in his life. He is an amazing man.

Very good.

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Boxing fan or not, you can't help but enjoy this place. It's worth the time read the exhibit posts. The videos are both interesting and classic! The place is large so you won't be board ( or ready to leave) too soon. PLEASE do yourself a favor and visit this once in a lifetime experience.

“Fabulous facility!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The museum occupies 5 floors located on the river in a beautiful building. Boxing fans could spend all day here; even if you are not a fan you should plan on spending a couple hours. A lot of terrific displays and short movies combine to give you a sense of why Ali was "the Greatest".

“Ali Museum”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was well done. A nice video when you first get there. There is a pretty good gift shop with several hard to find Muhammad Ali items that even bare authentic autographs. It also has speedbags and other things. It is multilevel where you can actually go downstairs and watch old fights on TV screens.

“This was life changing”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The exhibit was top of the line. I especially loved learning about the reasons behind what made Ali into who he was. The boxing gym was also a fun pit stop half way through the exhibit.
