  • Really great and a lot of fun, I would definitely recommend it to anyone. After the tour you get a free mini bat. I did 4 stars only because I was expecting a larger museum, something that would take the day to walk around in. They have some neat little exhibits and simulators but y'all, it's just 1 room! The "museum" is one large room. The factory tour was neat, it took about 30 minutes and you're done. It's worth doing, great for families, just don't plan your day around it.
  • Awesome experience. So much history to digest, especially if you are a baseball lifer such as myself. Will def be returning again. I would high recommend Tony as your guide. I took a private tour with a group and he was top notch. He really amped the experience of the tour up and answered every single question our group tossed at him... very impressive. Thanks Tony and co for an awesome time!
  • Awesome place to visit! Super fun! Only worth one trip though. Wouldn't got through the tour again, but cool to see how things are made. Fun little batting cages. Nice but expensive bat.
  • This place is great. Pick a time to go for a tour and then get there early. You get to walk through a museum where you can hold game-used bats from Hall of Fame players. Or you can test your arm pitching speed or you can stand behind a catcher and see what it is like to be the Umpire in a 100 mile per hour fastball. There is a lot of baseball history to read and see in that one room. The tour is great, taking you through how bats were first made the design of bats, and players special requests. They show you everything from their selection of wood to how they dry cut and Mill modern bats. And then at the end they stamp on the iconic Louisville Slugger emblem.
  • Very interesting and informative. We didn't have to wait long (maybe 10 minutes) for our tour to start after buying tickets. The groups are small enough that it is easy to hear and see what is going on. Gift shop is available with related merchandise. Allow a few minutes to look at the displays in the museum area they are very interesting.
