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!

Tour is 25 minutes, nothing notable about it, I would save the $$$. The museum is worthwhile if you are a Baseball fan. We arrived 30 minutes before closing and staff really hustled you through. Allow one hour minimum. Wish staff told me to return the next day instead, vs taking my $$$ and rushing me through.

Lots of cities have horse tracks, zoos and riverboats. But there's only one Louisville Slugger. Originally went to see the Coca Cola Christmas exhibit, but got to go on a tour of the factory. I learned alot about the making of baseball bats. Even got a free souvenir bat to take home. And I enjoyed the Coke Christmas exhibit. Easy... More

We actually went to this museum to see a special exhibit but decided to go on the factory tour while we were there. I was pleasantly surprised, the tour is interesting and I learned something (so guess the time wasn't wasted). It isn't a long tour, its a mix of videos and onsite viewing. My friend who is hearing impaired... More

This museum was a lot cooler than I would have expected. They've done a great job to make sure you have enough to see. Plus, the huge bat up front is a must take photo opportunity.

Even though my daughter and I are not baseball fans, we found the history and factory very interesting. We watched them make both standard and professional bats. Worth the trip if you are downtown.

If you like baseball, even a little, this reasonably priced museum and factory is a great stop. This is a piece of American history and each paid admission gets a free mini-bat. You get to see and hold replicas of bats of some of the GREATS. My son got to hold Honus Wagner's replica bat and we were all amazed... More

We know nothing about baseball, but enjoyed our visit to The Slugger Museum. It was well laid out, the guides were very knowledgeable, and the factory visit fun. They have a netted area in the museum where balls are hurled at you by machine and you get a real idea of the force these balls are thrown at when they... More

We weren't planning to go to the Slugger museum, but we had some extra time. Informative and short tour (30 minutes). Kept us interested and very interesting to see how the bats are made! For baseball fans, you get to hold some of the players bats that are made in the factory... Pretty awesome!

This is a great activity for baseball lovers. I'm not huge on baseball and still thought it was interesting. I wouldn't do it again but I'm glad I saw it. The tour is about 30 minutes and worth the $12. You can get a bat engraved while you are on your tour and pick it up when you finish. Staff... More
