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.

Well worth the visit. Take the tour and make sure you see the bat vault...holding the bat model that every one of Babe Ruth’s bats created from was incredible. Amazing...

I loved the move, the tour and the gift shop. I can't wait to come back with my grandkids. They would love this place. I think this was one of the highlights of my trip to Louisville.

This is a must-see in Louisville. You can walk through the factory and see the bats being made from raw wood to finished product, much still done by hand. You finish in the museum which was very informative and interesting for all ages.

We were so glad we came. The tour was great - very informative. Some wonderful photo ops especially being able to hold a bat of a player that we had once seen playing. The souvenir bat you receive is a great touch.

How do you review a company that has played such a big part in the history of baseball? This was my 3rd trip and was just as fun as the first and I'm not even a big baseball fan! When you take the tour, schedule...More

The huge bat leaning against the building is worth the trip. Once you get inside you are amazed with the history and facts surrounding the company. Have your own personalized bat made.

This was our 2nd time here the last being in 2004. The history of the bat is captured very well with the exhibits. One look at the wall filled with players signatures speaks volumes how important the bat is. The tour on how the bat...More

Small free museum was excellent. I'm not a big baseball fan but really interesting all the same, especially the display where you can measure your pitch speed and the other where you can be on the receiving end of a pitch!

If you go after 6 it is half price. The only difference after 6 is that the factory is not fully functioning at that time. Many of the workers are gone home by then. But you save a lot by going in the evening.

You can find parking but you may have to use a meter. There's no charge to get into the store. AAA discount for full tour. I assume the batting cages are somewhere out of sight. Didn't see a lot of softball items. Everyone... More
