Went here with friends while on business trip. The location is right down on the river near the Galt House. The staff was so nice. The tour of the museum takes awhile if you want to read all of the exhibits. We had fun taking...More

The center is a nice review of Muhammad Ali's life. What I liked the most was the effort made to showcase his humanitarian awards. He was a giving, kind man and it really showed through in the exhibit. Overall I was not wowed by the...More

This place tells the real story of Cassius Clay and his turning to Muhammad Ali in his later years. He was not only a boxer, but a big time humanitarian as well. His story is a must do on your bucket list.

Fascinating overview of the life and politics of one of the 20th century's true larger-than-life superstars. We were in high school during the whole controversy about Ali's name change and then refusal to serve in an unjust war -- sure brought back memories of those...More

Way more beautiful than I could have imagined. Really captured every side of Muhammad Ali. I especially loved the added grandmother exhibit. Affordable too. My boyfriend is more of a fan than I but by the time we left I was too. Great museum.

Well done to the brains behind this museum. So much hard work has been put into this place and so much information to take in you could easily spend a couple of days there to read everything. The videos around the museum are worth watching.

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.
