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.

We're not "baseball people," but it was still neat to walk through the factory and learn about the history of it. The mini bat given out at the end is a nice touch too.

I've been a huge fan of the game all my life. Several years ago I was working in the area and had to make time to visit the factory. Definitely a stop for any baseball enthusiast! Can't wait to get back one day.

Even though my kids don't play baseball it was neat for them to see how a baseball bat is made. The lego room is awesome with a few of the fields made out of Legos.

Totally worth every penny! It cost $14 for the behind the scenes tour. No cameras allowed though in the actual factory. Once you're out of the factory we got to see some really cool life size figures of Babe Ruth, Jeter, and Robinson. After the...More
