The Ali Center will Re-Open Tomorrow, April 1st!

We Are Re-Opening to the Public Tomorrow!

Doors Open Thursday, April 1st
12:00 noon - 5:00 pm
The Muhammad Ali Center will re-open to the public tomorrow, April 1st, following a 3-1/2 month temporary closure due to the COVID19 pandemic. Hours of operation for visitors, including its retail store, will be from 12:00 noon – 5:00 p.m. EDT, Wednesdays through Sundays. The Ali Center will be open in time for Jefferson County Public Schools’ spring break.
We are also extending our new temporary exhibit Truth Be Told: The Policies that Impacted Black Lives through February 27th, 2022. Truth Be Told was created in response to the heightened calls for racial justice which began last summer. The exhibit features authentic plywood panels and street art used on buildings in the Louisville protests as a backdrop on which to share the historical accounts of Black history in America often left out of, misinterpreted, or falsified in our history books. Learn more about Truth Be Told HERE.
We encourage purchasing admission tickets online in advance to minimize person-to-person contact, but on-site tickets are also available. Health and Safety Guidelines will remain in place, including face mask requirements, temperature checks upon admission, and limited capacity.
In observance of the Easter Holiday, the Ali Center will be closed Sunday, April 4th, but will re-open to the public on Wednesday, April 7th.
All of our COVID19 Health and Safety Guidelines are available HERE.
Online tickets available HERE.
