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.

Had to take the tour as it is baseball legend after all. The engineer in me enjoyed the factory tour and I was happy to get my free toy bat. The museum was not personally I interesting but certainly part of history. Always glad when I see things still made in the USA and even better when they are still... More

When you visit this museum be prepared to spend several hours. Whether you're a baseball fan or not, you will be drawn into the stories from the tour guides who are top ranked! Time will literally stand still and yet it will fly by. You must take a souvenir bat home with you but you must know that you can... More

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory has something for everyone. You may be thinking, "I'm not a baseball fan" and I'm not either, but you shouldn't let that stop you. There are exhibits that change a few times a year and are rich with history; just like during African American history month. The art and process of how the bats... More

The Louisville Slugger factory and museum was a lot of fun. There were kids there of all ages although, since you are touring the factory, you'd want to make sure your kids were well behaved. It was fascinating to see how bats used to be made versus the current process. Great memorabilia from the dawn of baseball to the present... More

Nothing but 100% perfection. This was my second trip to the museum and my son's (age 11 and 8) first trip. We did the batting cage, pitching speed machine, tried out major league bats and took a million pictures. The tour is fascinating with the most knowledgeable guides. This is an absolutely must-do in Louisville and a must for any... More

What a fun stop on our way from central Ohio to Nashville at Thanksgiving! We were traveling with my 7 year old grandson. He does play Little League baseball and it seemed like a good stop to stretch legs etc. Whether you have time for the tour or not, there is plenty to see and do. The entire building is... More

Of course the City of Louisville is synonymous with this iconic factory. It was an easy walk to get here from my downtown hotel. The tour in itself is not super long but very informative. The historical aspect of what this company provided Major League Baseball is impressive. It was very hard not to walk out of the gift store... More
