  • Cool facts and history. The tour was cool, too. Group was a little large and you have your people who have to block the view for their picture instead of just enjoy the experience. Wish we could have....  more »

  • What an awesome experience! My kids have never been more inspired to go out and play ball! The tour was impressive. The attention to detail in the process was amazing to witness. It was cool to walk through a working factory while learning a great deal about baseball history. There were additional demonstrations in the museum portion as well and there were plenty of hands on opportunities for all. You could feel the differences in the wood, the cut, and even the finish of the different bats. At the end of the tour we were all given mini bats that were around $13 in the store! They have a generous military discount as well! The beautiful building and the street around it had a historic appeal. There was another museum just across the street. This was a gem of a find. My boys picked up some impressive souvenirs and are psyched to tell their friends about this cool experience.
  • Great tour, very informative. Gift shop reasonably priced and loved the exhibits. Really neat to see all the bat signatures on the wall. Well worth the price of admission. No photos from inside though so I got one of the horse out front!Well worth the price of admission. No photos from inside though so I got one of the horse out front! Parking is available within a block behind the building at 2 private lots for $7-8 all day.
  • Super cool place! Have been wanting to go here for a very long time. The factory tour was super fun! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the process and the tour in general had a tremendous amount of information about how they make bats. You get to see first hand how the bats are made. The gift shop had lots of cool items to buy, including personalized bats! Added a video of how that is made. Very cool, but bring your wallet! You pay for quality!
  • Great museum and factory tour! They really do a great thing by letting their guests right out on the factory floor. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Also very knowledgeable and engaging museum staff. Definitely check this place out if your in the Louisville area and are a baseball fan!
  • I visited here several years ago and I really enjoyed this museum. If you love baseball, this is a must see. It's the actual running factory. You get to see how the bats are made and the history of Louisville Slugger bats. Lots of fun interactive stuff. You also get a free mini bat at the end of the tour.
