This place tells the real story of Cassius Clay and his turning to Muhammad Ali in his later years. He was not only a boxer, but a big time humanitarian as well. His story is a must do on your bucket list.

Way more beautiful than I could have imagined. Really captured every side of Muhammad Ali. I especially loved the added grandmother exhibit. Affordable too. My boyfriend is more of a fan than I but by the time we left I was too. Great museum.

Well done to the brains behind this museum. So much hard work has been put into this place and so much information to take in you could easily spend a couple of days there to read everything. The videos around the museum are worth watching.

No RV parking, the Muhammad Ali Center is downtown and RV parking is not available. My suggestion would be to park elsewhere and Uber to the center.

We bought ours at the door. Probably a good idea to buy in advance,as large groups are possible to be there.
