I never anticipated seeing the complete story of this mans life and how he fought his way through life becoming one of Americas must beloved men. I wish I could have met him personally.

It was an ok place to visit. There isn't much for children to see. The shadow boxing was the main thing my kid loved.

The museum not only focuses on Ali the boxer, but also Ali the humanitarian. Lots of interactive exhibits so take the kids.

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.
