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.

Louisville Slugger museum and Factory was a very enjoyable tour. Not only all the baseball memorabilia and facts but a visit through the Bat factory was just like icing on the cake.

I brought my baseball loving 12 year old son here on our 7 game, 10 day baseball game road trip. As a baseball lover for as long as I can remember, this was a must see for us on our trip. We visited on Monday afternoon, and learned more about louisville slugger and their bats and history in 30 minutes... More

It is a experience I would not want a baseball fan (young and old) to miss. Plus interesting facts about players and games also a small bat as a souvenir of Louisville and maybe a mention of our ball team the Louisville BATS which is a feeder of talent to the Cincinnati Reds. Yep, we have a ball team too!

We had an amazing time visiting the museum and all the history that it has to offer. The tour was great and I recommend it to anyone that loves baseball as much as we do! Not to mention, downtown is gorgeous!

My family had a great time at the factory. You can watch bats being made and they give you a free mini bat. Can't miss the place just look for the huge baseball bat outside!

My wife and I were planning on traveling with our kids through the area and this stop was added to the itinerary at the beginning. I've always been a baseball lover, but I figured this would be just a ho-hum experience. Boy was I wrong. We were greeted at the front desk by "Aunt Susie" who has worked there for... More

A very educational experience for all ages! They explain how a bat is made from tree being cut down to the professional player receiving their shipment of custom made bats. The tour takes your group through the work area so you can see how quickly a bat can me made via the cimpute program to the batter's bat length, grip... More

We arrived at the museum at 6:00 pm in order to take advantage of reduced admission prices in the evening. We weren't the only people who had this idea, as there was a decent line--although it moved quickly--of people waiting to gain entry. We received tickets for a tour at a designated time, but we sneaked onto the back end... More

interactive exhibits, well planned and executed tour. The addition of Ripley's and other exhibits helped make it more fun and of course you get the bat at the end!
