  • Truly a world class attraction honoring the Greatest of all time. In addition to the exhibits and museum, there is a wonderful event space at the top with panoramic views of the mighty Ohio River and neighboring Indiana.
  • I was so excited to go here. Hugely dissapointed. I was expecting a lot more. On the walls that had sound bites that were too loud you couldnt hear because right next to you it was a different one. They should have had some headphones so its not over powering. Granted, Ali just passed away this year, I sure hope they improve it over the next few years. But it literally looks like they through up a bunch of clutter on the walls and said its a museum for Ali
  • Spectacular venue to learn about more than just the greatest. Amazing piece of art.
  • I've learned a lot about the Goat that I didn't know.nice facility.
  • Interesting place. Not only biography and artifacts. You can watch famous fights and have unique opportunity to step into the ring, and get some video lesson from the Champion’s daughter – Leyla Ali Amariah. For me, the most touching and astonishing thing was a picture painted by Ali in 2010. He donated it to a charity auction to raise funds for the United Nations World Food Programme.
