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 unique factory! Seeing ash and maple turned into baseball bats of all sorts. There is a museum, lego display of several stadiums, statues of baseball players and interactive pitching displays. At the end you are given a small baseball bat. Fun!

I found this a great tour because it was fairly shorter in duration which helped keep the audience interested. The tour guide did a great job of testing baseball knowledge and mentioned players from all over the country. Also, the batting cages was a feet...More

The tour is great. I would highly recommend. You get to see firsthand how baseball bats are made. And you get a keepsake on your way out!

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

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
