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!

Please visit our official website for up-to-date hours and admission prices.

I like baseball but not as much as my husband. He loved the tour. I was really shocked that we easily parked right in front of the museum, but that is probably because it was a Wednesday in February, probably not top tourist time. The museum was interesting , as was the tour. I especially enjoyed seeing Babe Ruth's notched... More

We took the family and visited the Louisville Slugger Museum while spending some time in Louisville. It was nice to see how they appreciate the history of their company and try to keep some of that history apart of their modern day production. We got to see them making bats for a couple of the Cincinnati Reds baseball players. Toured... More

which was just $5 since it was February and we were with a Kentucky resident :) The tour was very good but I don't think some of the younger people got the guide's jokes (I thought he was funny). Wished we could have taken pictures but I understand. Definitely glad we went.

Interesting if you enjoy baseball or wish to see how the bats are made. Honestly, I don't enjoy either but , it was something to do. The great big bat outside was cool. Don't expect to get all the bat in a photo, at least I couldn't.

I have visited the Slugger factory several times and always enjoy a return visit. This is a great American family success story, now in its fifth generation of family management. Great history and manufacturing process in renovated and interesting downtown Louisville, KY. I will return.

Only $5 admission In feb makes worthwhile. Free mini bat is great. Movie is very fuzzy and it made me wonder if the quality of my old Betamax was on par with it.

The tour was pretty neat. They show you how the famous Louisville slugger bats are made. You get to walk through their factory and see the workers using lathes to carve the bats. they give your a little history on how the brand came about. They also have batting cages, a tiny area for kids to play while waiting on... More

We really enjoyed the factory tour. Great to actually see bats being made in the factory. Our guide offered a lot of insight to the retail and major league markets. The exhibit areas were well done and included so much history of the game. The gift shop was not too expensive, considering it was a museum gift shop. The entrance... More
