We were lucky they were making bats on our tour. The museum before the tour was fun, lots of photo-ops. The tour was disappointing because the crowd was too big. Lots of 6' guys so smaller people never saw what was being talked about. Be...More

It is a nice tour. It's approximately 1/2 hour long. The guide was well informed and entertaining. The tour is through a function factory and they were very safety conscious. We enjoyed it. At the end they gave everybody mini bats as souvineers.

The tour is very interesting and the guide did an excellent job describing what the staff was doing. I lost my sunglasses there and went back 4 hours later and they had been returned to the ticket booth. Highly recommend this.

This was a good little place to stop on our way out of town. My 13 year old son enjoyed it. A little history mixed with some manufacturing education. Tour is only 30 min long so it's not an all day activity by any means-but...More
