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.

Our family had a great experience. The legacy and history of the factory was very good. The staff and curators were great. The artifacts and collection of game used bats was very good. If you love everything that is good about baseball and Americana...a must stop.

Our guide was excellent . We toured the factory and learned a lot. He started by explaining the old way of making a bat and brought us to present day manufacturing. I know nothing of the sport , the players nor the equipment. However, this was most interesting ! After our tour, we looked at the wall of fame ,... More

The museum and factory are an incredible place to visit for any baseball fan. The process, the history and the fact that it's still hand made (for the most part) is amazing! Definitely go even if it's just to walk the factory floor and feel part of baseball tradition!

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
