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.

The tour takes your right into the middle of the bat making factory. You're literally on the factory floor watching them crank out maple, ask, and birch bats in multiple sizes and weights. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about baseball and bat making!

This is a great activity for all ages. It was just long enough to be interesting with lots of stops for visuals and videos among the demonstrations. Our guide, Bruce, was a hoot and kept us all laughing. Even if you don't enjoy baseball you will enjoy this tour!

This place was so much fun! the tour to see how baseball bats are made is amazing. They can make and personalize your bat within 15/20 minutes. it' was $14 per adult to do the tour. If you are doing the tour, I suggest you order your bat first and that way it is ready when you are done.

An interesting trip, the tour lasts about 30 mins. Definitely something to see if you have a short amount of time to kill. The place is laid out well enough. The factory tour is in a working factory, so it's a trip, warts and all. It's not high gloss. My only suggestion would be to keep the groups a little... More

The fun starts before you even enter the building as you can take your picture outside with what I'm sure is the world's largest bat! Tours are guided and timed, but while you wait you can take a swing with bats from the greatest American sluggers, experience the speed of a fast pitch and learn lots of other fun facts.... More
