As a devoted baseball fan and American history enthusiast I had very high expectations for my visit to the museum and factory. I was not disappointed. I was in town on a business trip and my time was limited. I was greeted warmly upon my entrance and toured the factory first. I was excited to see how the bats were made; it was a very informative tour. The craftsmanship and pride of the laborers and staff was evident and the high quality workmanship is demonstrative of the city of Louisville. The town is magnanimous and welcoming. Like the sport of baseball itself, the museum lures its fans in with the promise of entertainment, pathos, poeticism, and historical accuracy. Those longing for a bit of nostalgia will be satisfied that baseball has earned it's place in history and has a future of prosperity and assurance. This is a great place for a single traveler to mingle and a whole multi-generational family to reunite. Baseball unites people and this museum celebrates it's history and documents it's great potential.
When in Louisville, definitely tour the Louisville Slugger Factory! It's fascinating to see how technological advances have changed the way baseball bats are made. It's also cool to see how batches of bats are made to a given team's specs. Everyone gets a mini-bat at the end of the tour. Perhaps the only bummer is that the personalized bats you can order aren't rated for gameplay.
If you find yourself driving down I-65 this place is definitely worth the stop. Even if you were over in Lexington or just passing through on your way to Florida for the winter, stopping by the Louisville Slugger Factory should be on your bucket list. They offer a great tour in their actual facility to see how their product is made. And at the end they give you a free mini bat. While you are there you can even order personalized bats. It's a great stop and I highly recommend it!
Definitely a place to visit for baseball fans and have a huge amount of wood bats, even customizable options. You don't need to pay a dime to go through the first floor, and the batting cages ($2 for 10 pitches) are a fantastic choice.
You don't have to LOVE baseball to enjoy LSM. My husband and I have taken my brother and his family there several times. We've done the tour once and our nieces love to visit the batting cage there. I think it's a great opportunity to see how bats are made and their painting process. They have a fun interactive room with historical facts and such. You get a cute Louisville Mini Bat at the end of the tour, which is a fun souvenir.
