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 was a really nice factory tour and museum. You'd be surprised what goes into making a baseball bat, and the tour guides are well informed. They had a pretty nice store, and a traveling exhibit by Topps which showed some really cool stuff - Indiana Jone's whip, Batman's costume from the TV Show, Bill Mumy's costume from Lost in... More

My husband and I hesitated to visit the museum because we have a wild 4-year-old daughter with a short attention span, but - for the sake of our 7-year-old Little League loving son - we decided to try. It turned out to be a good choice - this place is totally kid-friendly, and both kids loved it. They have statues... More

We had a great job at the museum! We did the factory tour and thought the tour guides did a great job with their information. The only negative aspect was that the tours were running so close together that it was hard to pay attention to what ours was saying because you could also hear the guide in front of... More

Interesting inside look at the most famous baseball bats in the world. Wonderful tour that is perfect for ALL ages. The guided tour only lasted about 30 minutes. Wish we would have been able to spend a few more minutes at each of the tour stops. The guides moved along our group very quickly, too quickly. The videos were informative.... More

How can one visit this city and not take a picture with this larger than life baseball bat? I owned a Louisville slugger bat as a child, as did my spouse. Fun to see where they came from. Many people left taking the tiny "bat replicas" with them, but we declined. Why waste wood on something we aren't going to... More

We loved the tour of of the factory, although it was much shorter than I thought it would be. You can visit everything (and do the tour) in under 2 hours. The custom bats were also reasonably priced. I wouldn't recommend this tour for kids under 3, but its great for any baseball fan!

Another one of the amassing things to visit in Louisville. Make sure and get your free souvenir of a miniature bat. Watch as the craftsmen sculpture bats for baseball and soft ball level from Pee Wee up to the Majors. Very Unique.

When we are in the area we always stop at the factory/museum and shop. We always find great baseball accessories and have been pleased with the products and service. But our last visit exceed our expectations. We purchased a "demo" bat for our 11 year old son for use this fall. We did not realize the bat was a "demo"... More

Along with Churchill Downs, this is a must-see for anyone visiting Louisville. It is located downtown near other museums and many restaurants. It is interesting to walk inside this old brick building to see where an important part of baseball history originates. As you enter there is a wall of baseball greats whose signatures have appeared on the wooden bats.... More

Fun tour! The young and young at heart will enjoy this - and everyone gets a free mini-bat! You can't miss the building high baseball bat out front.
