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.

Our family really enjoyed this tour. We’ve done a lot of factory tours and not many allow you right on the factory floor. This is one that does. It feels very intimate. Several of the employees chatted with us and it didn’t feel too corporate....More

This is a must visit for any fan of baseball. I did not realize there were so many historical artifacts here. I was able to hold game used bats of Albert Pujols, Ken Griffey Jr, and many more. I knew how bats were made but...More

Very cool tour! I learned a lot about baseball bats in 30 minutes, I enjoyed it and I am not really a sports fan.

Definitely worth the stop-and the walk down looking at all the commemorative plates/bats along the way down the street. The tour is amazing and museum store is excellent yet a bit pricey. The personalized bats are a must for kids.. very unique and enjoyable visit....More

Cool place. If you are a fan of baseball, you'll love this place. Watch them make bats by hand. Easy to find. Just look for the giant baseball bat leaning against the side of building.

Nice place to visit and take a tour to see how the bats are made. A good option to take kids or grandkids if you are visiting.

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
