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.

A necessary stop for any and all baseball fans. The ticket price includes access to a small museum area with previously used bats of active and former Major League players. There's a batting cage where you can test your mettle, a baseball simulator for pitching/hitting, and you can even see what it's like to have a 90+ mph fastball come... More

My family visited the museum and factory tour. We learned a lot and enjoyed the factory tour the most. To see the process of making a bat and learn the history behind it was awesome. My kids liked the interactive pitching.

Stop in Louisville on the way to Cincinnati. Not a big baseball fan but figured why not. This turn out to be a very rewarding and interesting stop. The tour was great, learned a lot about the bat making process. A great stop for baseball fans young and old.

This was awesome - to watch the steps used to make major league baseball bats. You even get a free mini-Louisville Slugger bat as a souvenir. There are lots of interesting facts and information about baseball bats and some of the all-time baseball greats. Well worth the visit!

We had family in from out of town so we were playing tourist. This was a must see stop for the 10 year old baseball fan in our group. I'm not really into baseball, but I did find it interesting to see some of the history. In my opinion, the tour was overrated. Though very informative, it was short and... More

We finally got around to visiting the Louisville Slugger Museum-my husband is a real baseball fanatic and has always wanted to visit. He were not disappointed and our daughter and I also were glad we visited. The tour of the factory and how the bats were made was very interesting, but I think it was the history that was so...

The 30 minute tour was very informative. Our guide was excellent. The process of making a baseball bat is very cool to see. There are a few other interesting attractions inside the museum as well.

We love the Slugger Museum and Factory--all of our family and friends who come to visit us are taken to the museum and on this tour. It is so worth it (especially for baseball fans like us). Not only does the museum have a movie and constantly changing exhibits of baseball memorabilia, but you can try your hand in the... More
