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.

This relatively small museum, gift shop and factory tour is easy to get to in downtown Louisville, KY. The video that we all expect on a tour is more inspirational than informational but fun to watch none-the-less. Touring the museum got me excited when I stood over the museum's home plate holding one of Jeter's used bats and had my... More

Really enjoyed my tour, as it is a working factory as well as a museum, the building outside is very distinctive with the massive Baseball Bat against the wall. The tour shows you where the wood comes from how long it takes to make by hand and now how quick by modern machinery. At this time of the year they... More

Took a group here with age range of 16-75. All enjoyed the tour and the mini bat that comes with it. The Lego display was interesting as well.

If you're a baseball fan, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is a great stop! The factory tour is fun and interesting to see the machines make bats for some of your favorite MLB players. The tour doesn't take too long, so you don't get bored. The exhibits are interesting, including Babe Ruth's bat and one of the bats Joe... More

Although I'm not really into baseball, it was fun to see an operational factory right on the main street of Louisville. Tour guide was very informative on all the statistics and players who used these bats, and the history of the company that got their contracts. You left with a small souvenir but no pictures, as picture or video taking... More

Cool stuff to see and watch. Not much to do... But, seeing the history in this place for a baseball fan is a must! BTW, you get a mini bat - that you CAN take on the flight home in your carryon luggage.

My family & I always make this part of our Louisville experience. This year, my son & I had a chance again to go. What made the tour great for us was the tour guide. Though I forget his name, he was an older man who loved his job and I even told him how I enjoyed the tour because... More
