This is a must see while in Louisville, Kentucky. There is something for everybody to see, read, watch and try. The museum documents every aspect of Muhammad Ali's life, both professional and personal. The museum is laid out beautifully. Plan to spend several hours because there is so much to see.

The video at the start was very good and covered a good mix of Ali's boxing career and humanitarian work. However, I felt there was too much reading to do, which if you have a child, would cause loss of interest. Perhaps more artefacts and memorabilia would have been good. Or taking a leaf out of the history museum's strategy... More

This place really surprised me. I thought it would be a drab and boring walk of looking at boxing pictures, but it was anything but that. There was a lot to do and many souvenirs as well. I went before the death of "the champ" so things may have changed since then.

The building is stunning. Exhibits allow a look into the private side of this wonderful man. His humanitarian foundation and efforts were a surprise to me. Visited with the senior club.

The Muhammad Ali Musem is an experience you'll never forget. The Musem not only has a beautiful display of Mr. Ali's memorabilia, the museum does an exceptional job in sharing the historical story of not only a wonderful Olympian but of one of the greatest educator and ambassador of peace in the United States.

There was so much reading and peripheral noise from other displays that it was hard to enjoy. No order to it. I real shame.

Great museum to spend 1-2 hours when visiting Louisville. A mixture of film, exhibits and interactive things makes it an interesting visit for both adults and children.

This is definitely a must see attraction. I was astounded by the 3 floors of history that encompassed the life of Mohammed Ali. There is far more to this man than can be seen in one day. We spent hours in this museum. Every minute was thought provoking, and a learning experience. Well worth your time and money.

Maybe a little different than your typical attraction, the MAC is a positive, reinforcing experience that, hopefully, educates all who take the time to visit. Ali certainly was a great fighter but there’s a lot more to the man. He contributed to humanity on many levels and it would be a great thing for the younger generation to understand that... More
