This place is great. Kids friendly exhibits touching on important historical events and issue of the times and life of Muhammad Ali. Many hands in and interactive tools for the whole family make an excellent experience. Great views of the river and city. All in all a must see on the museum circuit in Louisville.

I loved my visit. The museum is very well curated. I was reminded of many things about him and learned some new things too. I would recommend a visit to anyone living in or visiting the beautiful city of Louisville.

Did some restoration work on the parking garage here. Really cool architecture from the outside, and a great view of the river from atop the plaza. I'd love to take a trip down to Louisville and actually go inside the center.

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.

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.

There's a lot to like about this museum. The footage of his matches, including the seats that made you feel like you were watching it from your own living room was a nice touch. I also enjoyed the boxing rink, with pointers from his daughter. All the interviews, hearing him speak so passionately is a reminder of why we love him so much. He was more fearless out of the ring. The only reason it's not 5 stars is because the coordination during construction could be better.

A great place for my family to learn and understand not only the boxer Ali but the legendary quotes and thoughts of Ali. The beginning of the tour starts with a short film which sets the tone for the museum. It also takes you back in time to get some experiences from the civil rights era. You walk around at your leisure reading quotes while watching others describe the impact he has made on their lives. They are doing some remodeling so some floors you can't get to but there was enough on the three floors that had plenty of memorabilia and even interactive events. Young and old will enjoy this museum. If not for construction I would give it 5 stars.

Very educational and beautiful place. The workers are all very polite and it was great just looking all around the exhibits, there are three floors. And there are even some interactive exhibits, so that was even cooler. The view to the second street Bridge is great and it's just a nice place all around. They're under construction right now, so the Rolls Royce is not on display right now.

Made a special deviation on my trip home to see this place and was not disappointed! Ali has always been one of my idols and it was amazing to see such a large collection of art, media, film and artifacts dedicated to this great man! If you appreciate boxing, social justice and humor you will love perusing all the stuff here....

Great museum to while away an afternoon. The Ali Center has plenty of static displays with a lot of written facts and history. It also has a lot of interactive displays that kids and adults will enjoy. At the end of the exhibit are multiple seating areas where you can watch any boxing match Ali was ever in. Great informative museum!

This place is absolutely beautiful! Touching account of every aspect of his being. Thoughtfully put together. Will definitely come back!

Amazing. Everyone needs to visit. Take your kids so they can learn what all he meant. And that he was much more than the greatest boxer.

An excellent museum dedicated to Muhammad Ali. There is a lot of detailed history of his life the civil rights movement, and his sports career. You're certain to learn something you didn't know, and despite it appearing as a rather smallish space, you can easily spend 3-4 hours here.

Awesome place to visit in Louisville. It is a beautiful building on the river. Glass walls on the riverside let you see paddle wheel boats and Louisville. The center is filled with memorabilia. You can see photos. There is even original artwork by Muhammad Ali on the walls. The ground floor has a Leroy Neiman gallery too. This is a must for any boxing fan, sports fan or history buff. Very enjoyable and informative place.
