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.

We just had to go see the Museum and take the tour. And we are very glad we did! Very informative guided tour with interactive parts. You actually see the workers making the different types of bats.

The tour is only about 30 minutes long, but it gives you great insight into how baseball bats play such an important role in the game. The young tour guide knew her stuff and was pleasant with everyone from a crying baby to an older...More

It was fun and a learning experience. Interesting to see the history on our national past time piece of equipment. Yes even for a female, it was fun to see the bats and learn about the past.

This is worth seeing especially if your a baseball fan, The young guide was well versed in the ong history of the bat making business, and the large bat outside made for a great photo op. The tour include a souvenir baseball bat

I had some free time to explore Louisville, so when I saw the flyer at my hotel, I jumped at the opportunity to see where all the bats of my childhood heroes were made. The staff is very friendly. I recommend taking the factory tour...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
