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!

Because I'm not a sports buff I expected this to be a boring stop but because we were sharing our Kentucky visit with our adult son and his spouse we put this on our list of things to see and was I glad we did even for a none sports person like myself it was interesting enjoyable and fun

Our boys love baseball and this was a great place to spend a couple of hours. We loved taking pictures with the giant Louisville Slugger bat outside the museum. The admission price to the museum and factory was very reasonable. We enjoyed learning about the history of the Louisville Slugger bat. There were many cool baseball exhibits in the museum.... More

The tour through the factory was very impressive, they explain every step of the bat making process from where the wood comes from to how each player has their own pattern and type of bat all the way through the final finished product. Batting cage available and lots of museum pieces. Great gift shop where you can buy personalized bats.... More

We stopped by here with our family and friends for a couple of hours of fun. We did not take the tour but only stepped in to main hall and took some swings in the batting cage. You can choose different bats used by the greats, like Hank Aarron, which are based on their lengths and weights. Hitting a 50... More
