  • We spent three hours here. This is a fantastic museum that is very well put together and presented. All staff we encountered were very very nice people with knowledge and kindness. Just what Mr Ali would want. Don't miss this!
  • What an amazing addition to the city of Louisville. Lots of history on display. The good the bad and the ugly. The story of The Greatest is well told by the many exhibits and visuals on display here. A great place to take out of town guests as well.
  • I absolutely loved learning about him and his life during a summer trip. Perfect for ALL ages! The exhibits are very hands on and creatively displayed. I was lucky enough to visit before be passed away. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Louisville and would hands down recommend it to anyone.
  • First and foremost RIP Ali and I loved my experience visiting his center as it really cemented my fan hood of this man in and outside of the ring. This place is so rich with Ali's legacy and history of his time in general that I would honestly say it should be a must for your bucket list. This is truly a gem of history boxing or otherwise and should be part of any trip for this part of the country.
  • Amazing, we spent over 3 hours here's. Tons of inspiration and information about a true icon. Of your in town this is a must place to visit
