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!

Cheesecake is consistent around the world and this location is no exception. Good food. Stupidly large American portions. (Lunch tomorrow!) And the cheesecake you were missing.

Our 14 year old grandson enjoyed the factory tour and, surprisingly, so did we. The factory tour gets you up close to the people and machines making the bats and the museum has great baseball objects and history. Really glad we went.

I was unsure about how I was going to enjoy this, but the tour is awesome. It's really cool experience where you get to see first hand how the different bats are made and the history of it is awesome. It wasn't boring at all...More

Very nice small museum with a lot of stats on the players, along with authentic memorabilia. A very knowledgeable guide will also take you through the working factory showing how the bats were hand made and how they are made today.

The tour of how they make the bats was really interesting and a pretty good length. We enjoyed the Sandlot exhibit; seeing all the artifacts on display. It was also neat to take my daughter's picture with a bat used by a Detroit Tiger :).

Interesting and informative tour of the factory to see how baseball bats are made. Life size model of baseball players which made for a great photo opportunity. Batting for kids and lots more. Fun for the family.

I am sorry but I have no idea what happens during Derby Week. You should be able to contact them directly or go online to their website for information. You will enjoy the tour if you go. Quite informative and fun.
