Our Approach

At the Muhammad Ali Center, we believe that true change comes from collective action and collaboration. That’s why we actively seek out and work with community leaders, organizations, and institutions that employ an asset-framing approach and share our commitment to social justice. We believe that by joining forces through joy-centered work, we can create a more just and compassionate Louisville that reflects the principles of Muhammad Ali.

Inspiring Youth

The Muhammad Ali Center is proud to offer free admission tickets to registered Kentuckiana 501(c)3 organizations that serve historically marginalized youth. The Center is committed to removing barriers to access to ensure that every young person, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and be inspired by the incredible legacy and core principles of Muhammad Ali.

Admission tickets are offered on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Interested organizations should please note that all admission ticket requests must be received at least one month in advance of your visit.

Convening Community

The Muhammad Ali Center is proud to partner with mission-aligned non-profit organizations on events and programs that foster respect, inspire the next generation of changemakers, and promote social justice. Please note that all requests must be received at least two months in advance of the requested program.

Enriching Lives

The Muhammad Ali Center is committed to ensuring that our seniors live connected, healthy lives. Our commitment to serving older adults goes beyond traditional museum experiences; it’s about creating opportunities for meaningful engagement and connection. Current studies such as the UCLA Loneliness Scale and John Falk’s research on “The Value of Museums: Enhancing Societal Well-Being,” have shown that museums can play a vital role in combatting social isolation and loneliness. That’s why we’re proud to offer free tour experiences for elder care organizations and senior centers in the Kentuckiana region.

Requests must be made at least one month in advance of requested visit date.
