  • Chicago Cubs Championship exhibit was awesome. They had all the bats used in the 2016 World Series and the silver slugger awards.  more »
  • Didn't do the tour, but visited the gift shop. We got a personalized bat, which was pretty cool. They have plenty of souvenirs to choose from and the staff were very helpful.  more »

  • We stopped at the slugger Museum on our way home from a Florida trip. We are baseball fans but did not know a lot about bats and how they made them. When I heard that there was a tour, I expected it to be boring and dull. I was pleasantly surprised when our tour guide was funny and informative and made the tour a great experience. There is also a batting cage where you can go in and hit the balls that are pitched to you at speeds that they deliver in the majors. The tour was about half hour and we spent just a little over an hour in the museum itself. I don't think there was enough to keep us there for longer than that but I was still impressed and it was reasonably priced. And of course our whole family went home with the mini slugger bats. It is not something that I would do again but it was definitely worth the one time visit..
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Great place to visit. If you love baseball it's the best. Awesome museum and souvenir shop.
  • 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.
