Small enough to do in an hour but with enough info to learn about how the Slugger came to be. They have a guy turning bats on a lathe explaining the process and a demonstration of a 90mph fastball. Great gift shop

There is a parking garage directly behind the museum. And the elevator in the parking garage takes you to the museum. Very convenient.
