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! « less

I think if you're in Lousiville for even just one day you must make an hour or hour and a half to squeeze this in. A little more would be better but we were rushed with a toddler getting impatient. The tour of the factory is very well presented and you are given a significant amount of information on not... More

Never expected a place like this to exist but there it is in the center of town, in Louisville, KY. A small factory where important bats were made, for important baseball players. Everything about professional baseball bats is shown to you in this visit. At the end of the visit you receive a miniature bat as a gift. I like... More

We've crossed everything off our Bucket List in Cincinnati, so now exploring options. My hubby is a die-hard Yankees fan, so this was a no-brainier. Fun and interesting way to spend 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Louisville seems to be doing a nice job turning the area into new apartments, theaters and restaurants, too. Would be a great venue for... More

This place is awesome, anyone that like baseball/softball should visit this place. It makes you feel like a kid again. The history and knowledge is overwhelming. The tour through the factory is great and very educational.

Visited the museum and Factory in Late August 2014. Took the factory Tour. This is a great place to see how bats are made, the history of them and the future of the industry. The tour was about 45 minutes and the cost was reasonable. The tour guide was very good and told us a lot about the company and... More

Let me start by saying that I am not a huge baseball fan. I understand its the favorite past time, but it was never a sport I got into. That being said, I had a wonderful time at the Louisville Slugger factory. This is one of those places you should not just visit because you are in the area, but... More

We stopped here with our 2 yr old after we arrived in Louisville via air. It's another 2 hour drive to my parents house and we knew he would need a way to let out some energy! The tour was great and they were making Derek Jeters bats while we were touring! The history is amazing, the tour length was... More

We took our 3 boys, 9,7, & 2. We had a great time taking pictures with the wax figures and loved the tour of the factory! We were there for about 2 hours and plan to go back to Louisville in the next few years to do it all over again! Highly recommend if you're a baseball fan! Fun town... More

Very interesting tour, allowing one to see how bats were made in the past, and how the process has been modernized through technology. Something for everyone--a bat "nub", a small bat, and the 90 mph pitching demo was awesome. Don't miss it!

Any baseball fan needs to take time and check this out. The history is rich and very interesting. Well worth the 12.00 tour fee.
