The Muhammad Ali Center is a museum and educational center located in the heart of Ali’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. The Center is a tribute to the legendary boxer and is dedicated to promoting his six core principles: confidence, conviction, dedication, giving, respect, and spirituality.
Our team of educators provide students with an enriching field trip experience framed on Kentucky academic standards. Students can learn about the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali while also exploring ideas of social justice, cultural diversity, and personal growth.
