Very interesting! Many people there so lines were kind of long. Get a free baseball bat, too. Kids liked it as well.

Very interesting tour & informative, plus they were making bats for Derek Jeter that day. We were able to see all the steps for making the bats, types of wood, machinery, process for engraving logos, etc.

Watch the bats being made--see interactive displays and watch an informative movie. I went with a group of first graders and they loved it. Everyone gets a souvenir mini bat at the end of the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum-factory. And yes, it is a working factory but the tour is right through the middle and you feel you are enveloped in the entire process of making a bat from start to finish. The guide is wonderful and and the short tv clips throughout the tour add to the information that is prevalent throughout a visit. Museum is outstanding and not overwhelming, even including free picture opportunities as a fully outfitted batter (even get your choice of bats!) or standing next to a very life-like Derek Jeter. When we visited years ago, it was enjoyable but many improvements made this stop a highlight of our visit to Louisville. Highly recommend!

Terrific tour guide, Don, made this a special trip. Lots of history, side stories, fun presentations. Be sure and check for daily activities. We got there just as the Bat Vault tour began. Special feeling holding model bats for Aaron, Ruth, etc. and interesting stories about obtaining contracts for autograph bats. Just a great experience. Allow plenty of time. Able to park at meters on street...which did not work properly but no problem. Heads up if flying, you cannot carry any size bat on plane, even the free mini bat you received after tour. Ok to check in luggage, but check with museum staff. No pictures allowed during tour was understandable.
