  • Very nice venue for any event. Beautiful views outside. The staff were nice. Food was excellent. We were there for a graduation celebration for "The Family Scholar House". I was a very special day.
  • This place is a piece of history. A place that reminds us of a great man, full of energy, ambition, confidence, change, and compassion. This man traveled the world preaching for peace. Agree or disagree with him, he's a hero to millions and definitely made an impact on the world. The museum is a nice, state of the art exhibit of his life and some of his belongings. Don't miss it.
  • The museum was very nice and done tastefully. It shows many aspects of his life and many different live media, actual footage, and a great tribute to his legacy. I did not know his museum was here prior to visiting the city. R.I.P. Muhammad Ali.
  • So glad I visit this museum the entire museum is dedicated to one of America's top sport athlete its big and roomy with enough information to keep you moving about its also reasonable price for admission with plenty of discounts additional the store is reasonable price to purchase a gift for someone or yourself love it and definitely recommend this museum
  • A must visit in Louisville!!! They have their own parking garage;you can expect to pay about 4 to 5 dollars by cash or card as you exit. Admission was $12 for adults; discounts for military, senoirs and students with IDs. Mild dress code and large purses are subject to inspection. Strict photography limitations. Otherwise beautifully designed and thoughtfully displayed. A few art exhibits on one floor. Plenty of comfortable seating available throughout. Several videos playing and a few interactive boxing activities on fifth floor; elevator or escalate. Nice view of the Ohio river. I believe the top floor is available for venues. Spent about 3 hours and still didn't see everything.

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.
