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.

Visiting Louisville we wanted to see the Louisville Slugger facility. Upon our walk there we found the line to be very very long. An employee was telling the line that if you only wanted to see the gift shop, you would not need to be in line. The 30 min tour is $12. The gift shop had a long line... More

If you are in Louisville you must stop by and take a picture with the largest baseball bat! The tour guide was amazing, my family loved the tour and the museum.

Great tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory! It only took about 90 minutes total-with the actual tour taking about 30 minutes. We where there on a Thursday morning so it was not crowded- I'm sure weekends are different. If you find you have to wait for your tour, go ahead and shop- especially if you are having a... More

We were in Louisville so had to stop here. And the 15 minute tour was okay. But the rest was mostly baseball history and stories and how their bats played a role. Other than the tour we could have been in and out in 15-20 minutes.

We've been to Louisville several times and never quite took the time to go until now. This Museum and the Factory tour were nothing short of amazing. The factory was actually my favorite part because they are literally making the bats just inches from where you're standing. What other museum can you go to and hold the exhibit items in... More

I was a bit wary of going to to this museum as I am neither a big fan of baseball or museums and an attraction that combines both seemed like a bit of a disaster for me. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was incredibly fun to see how they go from cut wood to a beautifully crafted baseball bat.... More

We had a great time on the tour at the Slugger Museum. Lots of information about how bats are made, and we got to see them being made. Each station had a little movie, too, about how the machinery at that spot works, so that was interesting. And, everyone gets a small bat to take home! We enjoyed this place,... More
