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!

I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours here. It was tremendous. The museum was interesting with life size figures of players along with the history of bat making. The tour of the factory was about 40 minutes long and most informative. The staff there was warm and friendly and you could tell they truly wanted to be... More

You get to enter the museum and tour the factory. The factory tour is the best part of the admission obviously. Definitely worth a stop if you're a MLB fan. I think admission costs should be lower for kids in my opinion. The tour of the factory was definitely interesting. They have 2 batting cages in the museum for $1... More

An excellent tour - just long enough to keep your interest and quite interesting whether you're a baseball fan or not. You can buy personalized bats with a full name and favorite team engraved --- suggest you order before the tour and pick them up afterward.

What a wonderful attraction for everyone. Our guest thoroughly enjoyed his visit. Almost had to drag him out or he would have been locked in! Exciting to see the actual making of the bats. The stories of how and why certain procedures take place. Outstanding!

For me, the factory tour was the most engaging and informative. Didn't have enough time to walk around much, nor enough knowledge about professional baseball to be too familiar with the information, yet it was still very interesting. And if you're an avid fan, I'm sure you'd enjoy it even more than I did.

We stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon in winter, so it wasn't busy at all. We went on the tour of the factory which was interesting. Then spent about an hour looking at all the displays in the museum. Being that it wasn't very busy, they announced they were having a free tour of the bat vault, which is... More

Who knew that a vault containing hundreds of the earliest wooden baseball bat prototypes still existed? Or wooden bats that originally were hand tooled over a course of hours are now turned out by machines in less than a minute not lacking the original workmanship or quality. You don't have to be a fan of Baseball to enjoy a visit... More

Fascinating tour of an old time yet modern factory that is responsible for making thousands of bats! There is a movie about baseball, a museum, a factory tour and a shop. Lots of interesting items in the museum that spans the history of baseball from the beginning to today. Highlights, at least for me, were one of Babe Ruth's bats... More

Really nice simple musuem and tour. Enjoyed the history of the musuem. Great information. Very generous that they give you a small bat at the end of the tour! Musuem was nice as well! Batting cages were cheap... Fun place!

I was in town for a conference and I had Saturday off so I stopped in here. The tour is about 20 minutes and goes through showing how they make bats. Our guide was friendly and willing to answer any questions. There's a small museum, a theater and, for a small fee, batting cages. You get a mini bat at... More
