We didn't have time to tour the museum, but admired the facade from the riverfront park nearby. It wasn't until I looked at my photo that I realized the mosaic is of fighting figures.

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.
