Overview

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!

Very interesting and very hospitable, but shocking how they are the last holdouts of lean manufacturing. They have a great product and they can get away with just about anything, but it was kind of embarrassing the level of waste, the amount of WIP on...More

Not a baseball fan; but this is a small but very productive mini-manufacturing center. For the fan, lots of history. Tour guide was jaded and clearly the end of his shift, too bad for those who really cared.

This was the last stop on our vacation. We really enjoyed the tour and the kids were excited to get the mini bats. The museum is neat and the gift shop is big. We parked in a garage behind it.

We enjoyed our tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum. Our tour guide was great - made a point to include the kids on the tour which they really enjoyed. Loved the mini bat each person gets after the tour.
