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! « less

Cant imagine visiting Louisville without seeing the Slugger museum. It was way more than I had expected and really cool. The factory tour is worth it and getting to hold a game used Mickey Mantle bat...priceless!

This museum is excellent for all ages. Very well done. And the factory tour that follows is very interesting. It's a nice touch that they give everyone a miniature bat souvenir. Learned a lot and it was fun.

Being able to see the famous wood bats being made is a real treat. You just can't leave without a smile on your face. TIP - As with most museums,... More

This is another one of my favorite places to take guests visiting Louisville. Since this is a working factory as well as a museum, the tour gives you an up-close-and-personal view of Louisville Sluggers in the making.
