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.

It's a very educational tour. It's a little pricey, but worth it. You have no idea what goes into making a bat.

Very good tour. It was short but very informative even if you are not into baseball. It is amazing to know that major leaguers all get their bats out of Kentucky. You also get a mini bat after you leave. Very cute!

While visiting the area it was too cold to do anything outside so we took our 13 and 9 year old. Whether you love baseball or not this is a neat place to visit. There is a museum that kids will enjoy, batting cages and...More

Excellent tour with upclose views of the actual making of a professional baseball bat. The chance to hold Babe Ruth's homerun bat and many other real historical items was great.

I was skeptical about liking the museum/factory. But I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I was very informative. I would suggest it for everyone.

Do the movie first, then visit the museum. Loved the history and seeing how the bats are actually made.

As part of the tour they should have someone set up at each station. The BEST part of the factory tour for me was the first stop where they had someone making a bat the way they use to - by hand sculpting as it spins! I'm... More

If you go after 6 it is half price. The only difference after 6 is that the factory is not fully functioning at that time. Many of the workers are gone home by then. But you save a lot by going in the evening.
