Description: Batter up! It takes a special place to craft the #1 Bat in Major League...
Batter up! It takes a special place to craft the #1 Bat in Major League Baseball. At Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, experience history-in-the-making as you stroll through the actual factory where world-famous Louisville Slugger bats are created. The award-winning factory tour is a highlight of the visit here, but there's plenty more to enjoy along with it. Admire the World's Biggest Bat - stretching 120 feet into the sky. Hold bats actually used by baseball superstars like Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench, Cal Ripken Jr. And Derek Jeter. Face down a 90-mph fastball hurled by a major league pitcher. Count the homerun notches Babe Ruth carved into his Louisville Slugger bat for every home run he hit with it. Step into the batting cages and take some swings with a replica model of your hero's bat. Guests even get a free miniature souvenir bat at the end of the factory tour. You can even create a bat with your own name on it, just like the pros. They make great gifts for all kinds of special occasions, from newborn babies, to groomsmen gifts, to team trophies and more. The museum store is also loaded with lots of sporty merchandise for every budget. Be sure to swing by! Please visit our official website for up-to-date hours and admission prices.

Have visited here twice now and will certainly be going back again. This is a fabulous educational experience. We are baseball fans and learned so much about the history of both the sport and the engineering of the legendary Louisville Slugger. Reasonably priced and so much to see. Be sure to make this a stop along the way!

From the time you enter until you leave the history and lore ring true. There is a wonderful movie on the tour- the tour itself is very interesting and our guide was great with the kids and very interactive. The real prise I thought was the exhibit with batman/superman and vast variety of collectible cards and fun information that apparently... More

This enterprise is with close proximity to many other attractions, making Louisville, a go to place for American Sports History. Here you can tour a variety of activity. One may see production, to taking a swing with a actual used Pro Baseball bat, to a hands on "touch and hold" cornucopia of available bats. The walk thru facility allows you... More

It was our first trip to Louisville and we wanted to see this. It is very interesting to see how bats are made now and in the past. Great for families. Everyone receives a mini bat at the end of the tour. The museum had a lot of neat things to see. I liked the TOPS card collections and other... More

We visited on a Saturday morning and enjoyed the tour. It was interesting to see how they take an ash tree, cut it in sections, and then extract billets from each section to use for baseball bats. Then they use a lathe to form a bat in 30 seconds. They have a very nice gift shop with reasonably priced merchandise.... More

This tour was absolutely awesome. We definitely want to go back and take our grandsons with us. There were some amazing bats, and the story/tour were very informative. Each area had a different spokesperson, who were just wonderful, and really know the Louisville Slugger story. The tour took you through every step, and revealed information that you would never hear... More

We were going through Louisville and were looking for something indoors to do on a rainy day and glad we decided to try the Louisville slugger museum. We were two families with two 5 year old boys and two 8 year old girls. My family is from a non-baseball playing culture and I was worried we will be bored (as... More

This is a great experience for people that enjoy the game of baseball and appreciate it's history. I went with my fiancé on our way from Florida to Michigan and it was well worth the stop. The history in the walls are incredible. The tour itself was paced a little slow, but with as many people as there were it... More

While a lot of players are now using other makes of baseball bats, I highly recommend a visit to this museum. It is interesting to see the bats being made.
