Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory
Welcome to what is considered to be 'one of the greatest sports museums in the world', the one and only Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory.
This museum celebrates the role of the Louisville Slugger in baseball's past, present, and future, and does so through several different educational galleries for guests to explore, as well as several different interactive activities and touring opportunities with the making of the iconic bats.
Just about 300,000 guests visit the museum and factory each year, learning about the bats' progress from 'forest to field' on the production line and seeing the remarkable historic memorabilia inside the galleries. The Factory Tour will give you a behind the scenes sneak peek at the bats currently being made and will end with your own free mini slugger! Inside you can hit the batting cages, see the legendary Signature Wall, or go take a peek at Joe Dimaggio's 56 games hit streak bat in the Must-See Bats gallery. While inside be sure to also visit the Museum Store to pick up your sports apparel, collectibles, or personalized sluggers!
Student groups can request a customizable tour based on their personal team favorite, and can also choose a boxed lunch option while here.
NOTE: Be sure to get your photo with the Big Bat, the world's largest bat sitting right at 68k pounds, 120 feet. It is made of steel and serves as an exact scale replica of the 34-inch slugger owned by Babe Ruth. There is also the 17 ton Big Glove nearby, made from 450 million-year-old Kentucky Limestone.
