Our visit to the Muhammad Ali Center was a "knock out". We were inspired, encouraged and fascinated by the story and legacy of this truly great man. We left with full and hopeful hearts. Don't miss this enriching experience.

Learned a lot about his life, politics, and sports. One of the docents actually grew up with him and was so interesting to talk to, made it very personal. I like how you start at the top and work your way down, following his life.

In our tour of the museum we learned quite a bit about Ali and left with a sense of his grace, courage, and wisdom. If you have time for just one place to visit in Louisville, this is it.

Great place to visit. Get a good feel for history of the greatest and racial awareness. I would recommend anyone to visit at least once. Gift shop does need to get the t-shirts better stocked w popular sizes however.
