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.

What a trip through history and getting to see how bats are made. Great museum experience and it was really neat seeing some famous players' bats. Traveled with our 13 yo son who plays team baseball and he was impressed. Which is hard to do when he's got his face in his phone catching Pokemon for most of the trip.... More

If you are a baseball fan or the parents of baseball players, this tour is a must. It is amazing to walk through the factory and watch the employees make bats. We were lucky enough to see Evan Longario's bats being made when we went through. Before or after the tour, you can put some batting gloves on and hold... More

So glad that we made this stop during our trip! The factory tour was fascinating, our tour guide Pee Wee spent time with us after the tour answering our questions and sharing some extra bat knowledge with us. The movie was very inspirational for my ball playing kids. Ripley believe it or Not exhibit was an extra fun bonus. Gift... More

I wouldn't give this place a homerun, but it was entertaining and educational, especially if you've played baseball, or like American sports history.

A trip to the Louisville Slugger is fun for the entire family. We had a group of 7 ranging in ages from 4 to 71. It was enjoyed by all. Be sure to do the factory tour and take time to browse the entire facility. We planned on being there an hour. Were there 2.5 hrs.

Holding bats of the game's stars past and present, the memorabilia etc. etc. Great tour guide, great attraction. All it takes is an hour and you get... More

This was really a neat stop. For baseball fans like my husband and for those that just like to see how things are made its really interesting. You get to walk through the factory and actually see the machines. There is also a museum portion and a kids area to enjoy as well. Great for the whole family. They also... More

The guys wanted to visit the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the women were not so interested (or at least we thought that before getting there). There was a very interesting Ripley's Believe it or Not section that we enjoyed while waiting for our factory tour. We found the tour to be very interesting and informative. We had a... More
