Muhammad Ali Center#3 in Best Things To Do in Louisville
Even if you're not a boxing fan, recent visitors said you should make time to see this impressive facility dedicated to legendary athlete and activist Muhammad Ali, who called Louisville his hometown. Along with memorabilia displays, historical footage and art and photo galleries, the center's permanent and temporary exhibits also touch on broader issues that were important to Ali, including race, gender equity and global citizenship.
Travelers described this as a must-see attraction in Louisville and said they walked away with a better understanding of Ali and his life beyond boxing. Visitors also praised the museum's knowledgeable staff and its easy-to-navigate layout, spread out across three floors.

There is a parking garage located underneath the center; it costs $10 to park. To avoid the fee, consider walking to the center, which is conveniently located in the Museum Row on Main area in downtown Louisville. For more information, visit the center's website.
