  • Had planned a road trip across the country from Washington state to Virginia and put this place on my list of things to see. Man, I was not disappointed! If you are a baseball enthusiast, you have got to make it by here. From the bat collection to the history of their company and baseball in general, it was very educational. The tour of the production area where they make the bats was awesome as well. Definitely recommend this to anyone who loves the game of baseball, and for touring the production area, you even get a miniature LS Bat!
  • Louisville slugger is definitely a must see! Awesome tour at a fair price with a gift at the end. If you're military, make sure you let them know as they gave free admission for our active duty member and a 2.00 discount for dependents. Our 2 year olds were free. You even save in the gift shop. What a great experience. I even got to hold a bat that was used in a game by Babe Ruth. Definitely could have spent more time exploring so I suggest you go earlier in the day rather than toward the end of the day. The sandlot museum section was small but really cool. Bring extra cash as you can even use their batting cage area for a fee. From the moment you step on the street, your experience begins so make sure you stop and look at all the things and get your pic next to the giant bat outside! Good for all...not just hard core baseball fans!
  • I don't know much about baseball. Now I know more about baseball bats tho, so that's pretty neat. Tours were filled and fun. Videos kept most entertained. Parking is kinda tough but the tours are every ten minutes or so. And everyone leaves with a free bat! A small bat that your not sure what to do with other than give it to a niece or nephew, but then you gotta worry about them hitting someone. So maybe be careful with the little bat toy.
  • This is very much worth the trip. We had such a good time at this museum, gift shop and factory. We spent quite a bit, but you don't have to. It is reasonable. Loved seeing how the bats are made. Our sons loved this experience.
  • Super fun tour for people of all ages to go on. We walked through the factory while it was actually working. On the tour you'll learn about their history, process of making the bats, and lots of other cool facts. You get to see the workers branding the bats, putting the glaze on them, and even watch a bit of a bat being made by hand. Also, you get a free mini bat at the end of the tour! Make sure to check out the cool museum part of the building before or after the tour!
