Ali Center is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm.


Located in the heart of historic downtown Louisville, Kentucky, the Muhammad Ali Center is an international cultural center founded by Lonnie and Muhammad Ali.

A visit to the Center is not just an experience, but a journey into the heart of a champion. The Center’s three levels of award-winning exhibits and galleries invite visitors to explore Muhammad Ali’s legendary life, as well as to reflect upon one’s own individual values, inner strength, character, and what makes you the greatest person you can be. Take a breathtaking journey through the Center’s interactive and multimedia exhibits and discover the six core principles that Muhammad Ali embraced throughout his life and how they gave him the wherewithal to be the best athlete he could be, the strength and courage to stand up for what he believed, and the inspiration to reach people around the world and dedicate himself to helping others.
