Call what it really is, a computerized lathe and a sales display. A waste at $9 each for a 20 min tour. No depth to the museum, just displays you could find at D&B's or Sports Authority. We were out of there in 35 minutes...More

For $15 per adult, we had a 30 minute tour and each received a commemorative mini bat. If you’re a baseball fan, it’s a neat experience. You can even get a personalized bat yourself.

Not sure we went with a group of 80+ and got a group rate. Besides looking at their website you might try the Louisville Chamber of Commerce for any promo's that they might be aware of.
