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.

Although this is a working factory, it is also a baseball bat museum. The tour not only explains all the steps but shows you each of them. At each stop you are able to handle bats made for specific players, like Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner,...More

Great tour with an inside view of how they make player bats. The bonus was seeing the bats for the Dodgers World Series games. ⚾️

Very interesting seeing the bats being made. Learning about different wood the players choose from. Loved being able to hold different bats from different eras.

Worth splurging for the behind the scenes tour. Neat to hold players bats like Johnny Bench's bat. Interesting to see how bats are made. Baseball kids will love this tour.

It is really neat to see, but for the price it seems like a rip off. You get a free mini bat, but it's basically the trash and really, what are you going to do with it? I got to hold a game used bat,...More

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

Hi there! The guided factory takes 30 - 35 minutes. However, we suggest planning to spend 60-90 minutes here, so you have plenty of time to explore the main and small galleries, check out our hands on exhibits, and take a... More
