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.

We decided to take our 3 boys on a whim since we were visiting Cinncinnati for a ballgame. Very glad that we made the trip. The boys loved the tour, movie and batting cages. I woul recommend arriving when it opens as the crowds get larger closer to lunchtime.

A must see for baseball fans. The tour is about a half hour watching the bats being made. Saw actual major league players bat being made. Nice large gift shop. Definitly worth seeing this.

Was great for our whole family. Tour guide was outstanding. Let the kids use the microphone push buttons they loved it. The movie was quick and entertaining. So amazing how quick they can put out a bat

This was an interesting factory to walk through. The procedure for making baseball bats was fun to see. It was pretty crowded but there is a maximum for each tour so that everyone can see and hear.

We enjoyed our visit, but it was a little over our 5 year old's head. Our favorite part was looking at the history of baseball and purchasing bats for our boys. The factory tour was neat, but our tour guide talked and walked pretty fast. It would have been nice to enjoy that part a bit more.

I came to this museum with three 10 - year-old baseball players, so they were in 7th Heaven! I loved seeing how the bats were made, as well as the history behind making bats. The kids loved that they could take a "knob" from a bat. And, of course, the free mini-bat we received was a very nice keepsake. The... More
