    Great museum to a great sportsman. Well laid out and reasonably priced. You can spend all day just watching all of his greatest fights!

    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!

    The museum did an excellent job presenting, via interactive multimedia and visual displays, what an amazing humanitarian, athlete, activist, role model and man Muhammad Ali was. Educational info on the culture and atmosphere through the decades. Beautiful museum!

    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.

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
