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.

Stopped in for a visit and had a nice experience. Learned a lot about the history of the bat and its creation. If you are a fan of baseball you should give this place a visit, truly worth it.

Very detailed tour and they keep you moving, if you like baseball history this place is a must. Not an extremely long tour and everyone gets a small bat, very friendly guides.

Went here because it's kind of a "thing to do" in Louisville, but it's pretty interesting and fun and quite a bit of history here. Besides seeing how the bats are made, there's a section before the tour with historical displays, an exhibit where you...More
