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.

Factory was fun. Lot's of repetitive work for the employees. Very interesting on the modern techniques on mass production methods. Lot's of autographed baseball bat's . It's not Cooperstown but worth a look see. Plenty of souveniors ,make you on personalized bat's. Plenty of autographed baseball and some pricey bat's .

We enjoyed the tour of the baseball bat factory. The displays in the museum were very interesting. I especially liked the old toys exhibit - got to see some of the toys that were part of my childhood. Really fun for all ages, and even for people not so interested in baseball.

The Louisville Slugger Museum is a must see for all baseball fans. The museum was full of informative displays and hands on exhibits. The tour was fascinating, and the guides and workers were knowledgeable. The big bat outside is spectacular!

We visited this place as a family. The museum isn't bad; the factory is actually the best part (though for avid baseball fans the museum has some moderately interesting items). But the big problem is they have signs everywhere banning legal concealed carry. In this day and age, that's inexcusable. Until they change that policy, skip it.

Terrific museum and factory tour of the famous baseball bat maker. See the machines that make the bats, with handmade batmaking demonstrations when the production lines aren't running. Everyone gets a souvenir miniature bat, and there's a batting cage when you can swing replica bats from baseball's greatest players past and present. Easy to find, just look for the world's... More

The tour of this baseball factory and museum was well worth the cost of attendance. We got there early when they opened and were able to find a parking stall on the street across from the factory. We got to see how the famous Louisville Slugger Bats used to be made and how they are made today. It used to... More

Located in town on Main Street. Full of baseball memories from the classics to present times. The factory tour is worth the $. You see and stand next to the evolution of bat production from hand to CAD/CAM
