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!

This is a classic must do in Louisville. Cost for adults is $15 with cheaper prices for kids and seniors and $1 off with AAA membership. Once you purchase your ticket, you are assigned a factory tour time and can explore the museum while you...More

Wow I was more than pleasantly surprised. I really went truthfully for the FREE Pink bat but found much more than I anticipated. I planned on walking in with my husband getting a quick tour to get my bat & leave. But, that did not...More

If you’re even remotely interested in baseball, you have to visit this place. You get a tour of the active factory (which is way cooler than it sounds!) and get to guide yourself through various baseball exhibits. The thing I loved most about this place...More

You wouldn't think so much goes into a baseball bat. It was very interesting to see how they used to be made and then see how they're made now. A lot of it is still very human-based production. Then learning how the athletes that have...More

Everyone wants a slugger even if baseball is not the highest thing on your pastimes. It was a great place to buy an American made bat!

This museum was fun as well as informative. The factory tour was a walking tour with different stations set up so one can watch the creation of a bat from a tree. It was a very relaxed tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly....More

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.
