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.

the louisville slugger museum & factory is located in the downtown area , over on main st, there is a public bus that leaves you at the door, or if going by car, you have a public parking thats really cheap just across the street. the area is really safe.

I really enjoyed my time in Louisville and the Slugger Museum was a nice stop. Even if you aren't into baseball, just seeing how things are done here is interesting. If you are into baseball, there are plenty of cool history tidbits to soak up.

Very cool place. Even if you are not a big baseball fan, I think you will enjoy it. Take the tour. It lasts about 1/2 hours. We went on a Sunday when the factory was not in full swing, so that was a bit of a downer, but we got to see most of the machines running. There is a... More

My family loves to go to the Louisville slugger Museum. We have gone on the tour several times and my girls love it. They also love the free little bat at the end of the tour too. ;) The temporary exhibits have always been fun too. We saw the antique toy one on New Years Day and it was great!
