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.

Great little museum and factory tour. $14 (-$1 for AAA members). What you get: 1) a small museum visit 2) 20 min seated film 3) factory tour 4) a mini bat upon completion of your tour With any reasonable ago you'll recall some baseball greats and the 'tie' to the long-standing famous Louisville Slugger.

This is a very interesting tour that compares the way bats were made many years ago to how they are made today. The guide we had was great! He gave us lots of history of baseball and the company. Every person on the tour gets a small ball bat.

It was my second visit to the museum but I liked how they keep up to date with historical changes to the game. They had a nice tribute to Ken Griffey being selected for the HOF. We went on a Sunday which was surprisingly not very busy. The downside is you don't get to see the production process in full... More

Great set up, loved the mini bats, and tour full of trivia about some of our favorite players. Batting cages were an added bonus.

It was good visit, the tour and the other attractions did not take very long but was informative. I think the cost was a little high but there were plenty of people to assist you. There are other attractions in the area to make a day of.

I really enjoyed the Slugger museum and factory. We had a personal bat made for my son and it was done very quickly.

Whether you are a sport fan or not, this place is worth the visit. It is very educational. You can see how the bats are made. They have a nice gift shop.

This is a really fun tour even if you don't really follow baseball. Our tour guide loves baseball it's easy to see. And he really knows his facts! It's so interesting to watch a baseball bat being made right before your eyes. There are a few videos to watch as you move along through the plant. You get to hold... More
