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.

An interesting piece of history

The museum itself is not too large but holds a lot of history. Tour of the factory was very interesting. They are very responsive to their customers!

We stopped with a large group and we all enjoyed it - baseball & non-baseball fans alike. There is a short video before the tour which was ok - I thought it could have been about the founders, history & old photos. Instead it was baseball greats talking about the love of the game & LS bats. Our guide was... More

Enjoyed spending several hours here yesterday with my baseball junkie husband. We really liked the guide during our tour of the factory. Very interesting how the majors players order bats. They have a lot of artifacts and a batting cage. The gift shop is interesting too, but most prices are a bit high.

This place was amazing. I'm not a true baseball fan but curiosity got the better of me and I had to have a look. It all starts with the unbelievably large bat out side the building and once inside you get an appreciation of what's involved in the making of the bats and technologies involvement. Well worth a look.

There is no excuse for not stopping for this historic, interactive, demonstrative experience. We loved seeing the multiple ways bats are manufactured. Even though we were there on a Sunday, machines were running! It's first class and really reasonably priced especially considering the value of the "free" premium you receive at the end. Easy to get to, adequate parking, reasonable... More

Being a big baseball fan, this is a must see while visiting while in Louisville. There are several exhibit that young and old can experience, such as holding a legend (Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, or Cal Ripken) actual used bat, standing behind a catcher taking a 90+ fastball, and learning the history of how the bats are made. The factory... More

My family and I are large baseball fans so the tour was a no brainier for us. There were interactive exhibits for the kids and interesting displays for the adults. As a warning, my son is 2 and he was upset at first because the factory is loud, but there was enough going on that he settled down pretty quickly.... More

Factory tour and museum made for a great vacation stop for the family. Not a huge baseball fan, but it was not disappointing. Filled with how-to and history along with some hands-on for the kids was a perfect fit for our short visit to Louisville. This is a must see!
