It relives the life of "the Greatest". Yes he was controversial at that time, but you have to put it in perspective of that time. He was as recognizable as Tiger Woods was during his hey day across the world. We didn't have a lot of time and it took about an hour and a half to go through quicker than I would have liked. Reasonably priced

Visited this place with friends whom are great fans. I could enjoy the stay as well and we spent there more than 3 hours. It is very interesting and educational about Alis' whole Life. Also the exhibition about Motown was nice, as we love the music! This place is really worth a visit!

Well located in downtown Louisville the Center is well laid out on several floors and a good introductory video at the start of your visit provides a very interesting start. There are a lot of fascinating exhibits setting the tone of what much of the USA was experiencing in the 60's, and moving onto Ali's fighting career. There are also many other exhibits dealing with Ali's life after boxing and his tremendous humanitarian efforts. The center is well worth a 2-3 hour visit and is a great tribute to a great man.

The museum doesn't just focus on Ali's boxing career; it has information about his personal life as well as his humanitarian work. Well worth a visit and very reasonably priced. The special exhibit on Motown they had going on wasn't as engaging as the main exhibits, but the idea behind the exhibit was interesting.

Thoroughly enjoyed visit. Am NOT a boxing fan but everyone's heard of Ali. The museum is very well organized. I'm guessing boxing fans would really love it. I enjoyed learning a little about Ali's life and work outside of boxing. Lot of interactive fun for family. Just seeing the clip of him lighting the Olympic torch was thrilling.
