Three stories (2 floors were closed for renovations) of information on Muhammad Ali’s life, history and culture. I especially like the section which focuses on Mr. Ali’s legacy and his philanthropic work! Gift shop was average.

My family and I have been here a few times, and each time we learn something new. Love the way this place is set up. There are so many facts, pictures, memorabilia, etc. Our boys loved all the interactive exhibits!

Oh the things that I didn't know. This museum is set up very well. There was so much to do and see. Can't wait to take my grandson there. I am not a boxing fan but I love Ali.

Really enjoyed the Ali Center. Loaded with info on this amazing man. The exhibits were creative and interesting. Only negative was that we thought they would have more of his memorabilia. Would recommend

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.
