Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's been a community landmark in Louisville for a decade.

The Muhammad Ali Center celebrated its 10th birthday Saturday.

Its mission is to showcase the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali and promote his ideals of respect, hope and understanding.

The center showed off its exhibits free of charge Saturday, including a new timeline of its history.

"For Mr. and Mrs. Ali to want their Muhammad Ali Center to be built in our city is quite amazing, because it will be the place that will carry on Muhammad's legacy into the future," said Jeanie Kahnke, director of public relations at the center. 

"And most importantly, educate the next generation about what an amazing person he is."

The event also included activities for kids, food trucks and live music.

The history timeline should be up for a couple months.
