The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is all about celebrating the extraordinary role of the Louisville Slugger bat in baseball’s past, present and future. The company has crafted bats in this factory “with the same pride that started in 1884.”
“We’re here to delight our guests and create joyful, lifetime memories,” say representatives. “Baseball connects generations, we see it here every day. Since the sport is such a big part of American history and culture, even visitors who don’t consider themselves big fans find something
here that resonates with them.”

Guests of all ages enjoy seeing bats being made on every tour, every day. There are hands-on exhibits for the kids, fun stories from history, and fascinating machinery.
Visitors learn about how the bats made here have been important in the long history of baseball. Hank Aaron (pictured at left) holds the bat that he used to hit his 700th home run.
Guided factory tours depart every 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the season. The last factory tour of the day leaves 30 minutes before closing. Factory tours last approximately 30 minutes.
Allow 2 hours to enjoy the entire museum and factory experience. Everyone receives a miniature souvenir bat at the end of the tour. Personalized bats can be ordered when you arrive for pick-up after your tour, or they can be shipped.
