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.

Amazing to see how professional baseball bats are made. Great tour and lots of interactive stuff for the young at heart. Everyone gets a miniature bat at the end of the tour.

Very interesting tour with a nice museum of baseball memorabilia. The tour is informative and you learn all about how the bats are made today from when they were hand tooled. If you are a baseball fan don't miss this.

The museum and the experience of holding Mickey Mantle's bat is unreal! I am not as hot on the actual tour of the factory but the museum and everything it has to offer is great.

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
