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!

We went on a Saturday morning in October. We did not know when we arrived that it was Derick Jetter day. We ended up getting in for appox $2.50 per person plus received Derek Jetter minature bats. Great fun experience!

It has been a while since I visited, but I've done it twice and it is always nice. The people there are very nice and they all will be happy to talk to you == this includes those that actually make the bats.

Of all the museums on "Louisville's Museum Row", I highly recommend the first stop should be the Slugger Museum. This is a museum not only for baseball lovers, but for anyone who cherishes the history of sport. Many fascinating exhibits....with special emphasis to the bat...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.
