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.

Our family visited with our 3 boys (ages 10, 8, & 5) and we really enjoyed it! The oldest 2 used the batting cages and the youngest hit off the tee. They were entertained throughout the tour and my husband and myself enjoyed learning about the process of making bats. We would definitely return the next time we are in... More

This tour was very well organised with demonstrations, short videos, good amplification for hearing the guide and lots of bats to examine. Bonus mini bat at the end of the tour.

This is a factory tour on how baseball bats are made. Good movies and informative guides. Buys a bat at end of tour with your name on it. You can buy the small size, especially if you are flying and need to get it in your bag.

Loved the museum & factory tour, even though a public holiday, the factory was still operating (although limited) so that we had the full experience.

Get there early for the best parking. We got lucky and parked on the street. Nice, interactive museum. Take the factory tour to watch and learn how they make baseball bats. At the end of the tour, everyone gets a miniature baseball bat at no additional cost.

The cost is a bit more than I expected, but walking through the factory and watching bats being cut, burned, stamped, drilled into, and glazed was... More

The tour was very informative. Interesting to learn the names of major leaguers who have contracts with the company. The information about the wood used as well as information about their logo on the bat has given us something to look for when we watch ball games
