Owner description: 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 is a great afternoon event learning about the history of baseball, players, and other exhibits on a rotating basis. The manufacturing is interesting how bats are made and designed by the players for many special events. Taylor Made golfing is part of this manufacturing and museum. Just remember that the bats you purchase or obtain will not be allowed... More

To see how bats are made now as compared to the labor intensive process used years ago was rather interesting. The wax figures are also excellent that are on display. Standing behind the batters box when a 90+ MPH pitch is thrown just proves the talent it actually takes to hit major league pitching. The tour itself is led by... More

My son and I, both baseball fans, loved the factory tour. The guide was very good and the mix of real machinery and videos made it both informative and entertaining. A must see!

I am not a baseball fan and went to this museum because my friend wanted to go. It turned out to be pretty neat. There were baseball bats on display from many famous baseball players. The factory tour showed us how they make the bats and you saw it happening right in front of you. You even get a miniature... More

The Louisville Slugger is a great place to go when you want to see something different and don't have a lot of time. It took us probably an hour there to see the tour and the movie and then we were on our way. I definitely recommend stopping by if you ever in the area.

In essence, the place is awesome and a must visit for anyone headed to Louisville. To help consolidate all of the reviews and provide some meaningful information: Pro tips 1. There is no student discount. In fact, there is no discount whatsoever on admission. 2. Your admission consists of a showcase area, a museum tour, and a brief movie about... More

The process to manufacture the bats is fasinating to watch. They lathe the basic shape in only 30 seconds. Many bats and baseball history are on display. If you like baseball and you're in Louisville, this is a can't miss.

My two sluggers loved visiting this museum years ago when they were little and it's still a great tour. Seeing all the great players and their choice in bats was the best part of the trip.
