Located in the heart of downtown Louisville, the Louisville Slugger Museum offers visitors the opportunity to see where the legacy of the famous baseball bat company first began. Folks can explore the baseball-themed museum and visit the factory where baseball bats are still made today. The most impressive aspect of the attraction is probably the world's largest baseball bat which leans casually against the Hillerich & Bradsby building.
Fans of baseball will love exploring the interactive exhibits and looking at all of the historic baseball memorabilia. During the bat factory tour, visitors learn all about the production of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Interestingly enough, about a million baseball bats are made here each year. Factory tours run seven days a week and last approximately 25 minutes. Kids enjoy climbing over the giant-sized baseball glove, trying out the batting cages, and handing bats once used by baseball legends. Families also enjoy taking pictures standing next to statues of famous baseball players.
In addition to the tour, each guest receives a mini souvenir baseball bat to take home as a memento of their visit.
