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.

What a fun stop on our way from central Ohio to Nashville at Thanksgiving! We were traveling with my 7 year old grandson. He does play Little League baseball and it seemed like a good stop to stretch legs etc. Whether you have time for the tour or not, there is plenty to see and do. The entire building is... More

Of course the City of Louisville is synonymous with this iconic factory. It was an easy walk to get here from my downtown hotel. The tour in itself is not super long but very informative. The historical aspect of what this company provided Major League Baseball is impressive. It was very hard not to walk out of the gift store... More

The museum portion of this was small, but a nice collection of bats and other items used by the Hall of Fame Big Leaguer that used these bats. But you really want to see how these bats are made, and how manufacturing has progressed through the years. By the way, you can personalize a souvenir bat while there. Also, register... More

This was a pretty awesome little pit-stop on our way through Louisville. Our guide was pretty awesome and knowledgeable. The price for the little tour was a little bit, but not too too bad. I liked the little gifts they gave throughout the half-hour or so tour, so it made up for the $14 price. The building as a whole... More

We basically had a personal tour of the factory! Our guide was interesting and could answer any question we asked. We liked that we went right onto the factory floor. The pitching and batting cages are fun to do.

The tour was very interesting. He passed around bats as the tour went along so you could feel the difference in weight on the different types of wood used. The machines used today compared to how it was done by hand...

The tour doesn't take long and you get to experience some interesting activities in the museum area while awaiting your time. Worth the money, especially since you get a free mini bar at the end.
