LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Twelve years after first opening, the Muhammad Ali Center is getting ready for a makeover.

The center in downtown Louisville says in those 12 years, the area has had normal wear and tear and it’s time for an upgrade.

There will be a complete redesign of its main lobby, gift shop and group entrance.

The renovations are expected to begin in mid-January and will take about three months to complete.
