  • If you are a fan or not this is a must stop if you are interested in the city of Louisville. Ali plays a big part in the history of the city and the world. 
  • The Muhammad Ali Center is a great tribute to a great man. I loved the exhibits and how the showed his relationship to what was going on in his life. A must see! 
  • Even if you don't like boxing, this museum is a must! It's very interactive and informative not just of his life, but of the time. When you get there, head all the way up the escalator to the theater ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Enjoyed my time here. Learned about how much of a humanitarian Muhammad Ali was. Some really neat and fun exhibits. I was hoping to see more memorabilia from throughout his career.
  • I love this place because it is so very rich in history. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to know Muhammed Ali. I could have made it a all day affair.
  • A lovely museum. Unfortunately my work called and I needed to print off a paper to sign for work. Should be simple, print the page or help me find a kinkos or any friendly tourist destination. The staff had no idea where I could access one, and wouldnt help out, "I dont have a printer". A decent museum, but not a good tourist destination or service environment.
