The Muhammad Ali Center, located in its namesake's hometown of Louisville, is an exciting modern museum venue that shares the story of boxing's "The Greatest".
Visitors to the center begin their experience in a five screen multimedia theater with the film "If you Can Dream," narrated by James Earl Jones and Maya Angelou.
From there guests begin their walk through the multi-floor space to learn about Ali's early years, his rise to fame, and the struggles of the civil rights era. The museum has unique displays that engage visitors including watching excerpts of Ali's boxing matches projected onto a regulation size boxing ring that was used in the Will Smith movie, "Ali."
The museum truly has something for everyone, and whether you know a little or a lot about Muhammad Ali, you will leave the Ali Center with an understanding of not only the great contributions Ali gave to the world of boxing, but on a higher level his contributions to the world as a great inspirational leader.
