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!

Very cool place. Even if you are not a big baseball fan, I think you will enjoy it. Take the tour. It lasts about 1/2 hours. We went on a Sunday when the factory was not in full swing, so that was a bit of a downer, but we got to see most of the machines running. There is a... More

My family loves to go to the Louisville slugger Museum. We have gone on the tour several times and my girls love it. They also love the free little bat at the end of the tour too. ;) The temporary exhibits have always been fun too. We saw the antique toy one on New Years Day and it was great!

With an hour or so to kill and the museum in easy walking distance, we decided to drop in for what proved to be an enjoyable visit. The 20 minute tour takes you through the actual Louisville Slugger factory where workers are turning and finishing the company's famous bats (In truth, I understand many MLB players are now using competitors'...

We are not baseball fans, so the museum portion was only marginally interesting to us. I don't know the players or much about the sport and it's history, but the museum was a nice little introduction. While we are not baseball fans we are fans of factories and how things are made. The factory tour was interesting and informative even... More

What a great experience! Our tour guide was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about baseball players and their bats. I know - that is his job, but you could tell he loved it, even after doing it ten years today!!! My husband is a Cubs fan, as was our guide. He shared lots of little tidbits of information with my...

I must admit, I didn't want to go with my husband and son. I am so glad that I did. Great tour guide, lots of wonderful history and a batting cage. We loved it!

If you have time to catch a tour take one. If you don't have time walk through the free museum and gift shop. Its amazing how they can make bats so fast. The tour does show you how it used to be done back in the day.

Be sure to visit if you are in Louisville. If possible, go Monday thru Friday while production is going on. You actually see bats being made. The guides are interesting and well informed. We always take out of towners there. Just look for the Worlds biggest bat outside the building.

From being able to see exactly how bats are made, to hitting balls in the batting cages with a replica of Mickey Mantle's bat.... this place is amazing. I was there for 3 hours, and still could not see it all. I also was able to buy a genuine Louisville Slugger bat to take home. I was very pleased with... More
