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.

Lots of fun for the whole family!

Great place to visit for any baseball lover! The adults enjoyed the museum as much as (if not more than!) the kids!

Had a great time touring the factory and buying wooden things in the gift shop. Tour was up close and very interesting!! I heard a rumor they may close. So sad.

everything you always wanted to know about baseball bats but were afraid to ask. Interesting factory tour, especially when the season is on. Explanations about how different players request different bats was interesting. Also includes a very small Ripley's museum. Be sure to try the interactive parts, especially looking at a fastball coming towards you, and the batting cage (small... More

You should definitely visit here while in Louisville and do the tour. You get to see and learn so much. You will actually get to see the bats being made. You can actually touch some of the bats used by MLB players in actual games. They take you step-by-step through the bat making process which is great. The museum part... More

This was a stop on our way back home during a weekend Cub Scout trip. The museum and factory tour are both very entertaining for all ages. The museum isn't huge, but it has some pretty impressive stuff, i.e. game used bats, historic bats, pitching demo, etc. Seeing bats being made on the factory tour is very interesting and the...

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is a fascinating tour for baseball fans and surprisingly interesting for those that aren't devotees of the game. The museum exhibits help capture a slice of Americana and not just historical relics and game statistics. The factory tour is well suited to family outings and allows safe, up-close views and a true feel for... More

Very interesting tour to learn about the tools of America's favorite past time. So many of our favorite baseball players have stories about their Louisville Slugger. Now you can learn how they are made, and get one for yourself. Includes batting cage opportunity, movies, lots of hands on experiences. Museum includes a space for the Ripley's believe it or not...
