In its 33-year history, the Louisville Zoo has dedicated itself to the pursuits of education, conservation, scientific study and recreation.

The new exhibits include high-tech computerized hands-on displays and video graphics.
Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, the city where Muhammad Ali's story began, the Muhammad Ali Center will serve as a place to celebrate the deeply rooted values and worldwide influence of Ali.

The Muhammad Ali Center will become one of America's most exciting places to visit. Not only will the Center explore Ali's life and what makes him such an enduring hero, it will also touch its visitors' lives and inspire them to emulate his discipline, perseverance and willingness to stand up for one's beliefs.
