Louisville Slugger Museum

Vacation Travel Guide
Louisville Slugger Museum showing interior views

Baseball is part of the American fabric. See where one important tool for this sport is produced in the factory that makes ball games possible.

If you have a large or small interest in baseball, take a tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Many baseball games have been played in parks and backyards since 1884 when the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began production. Learn interesting and fun facts about the Louisville Slugger from knowledgeable tour guides.

Look for the 120-foot (37-meter) baseball bat leaning against the brick building. Many exhibits inside are interactive. One offers a huge thrill by letting you handle the actual bats that were used by baseball stars including Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench, David Ortiz and many others.

Photograph other bats that made sports history such as the Babe Ruth Notched Bat in which the player carved his number of home runs in 1927, Joe DiMaggio’s bat that broke a record in 1941 and still stands today or Hank Aaron’s signed 700th home run bat from 1973.

Try your skill at hitting in Bud’s Batting Cage with a replica of a famous bat or a current one for baseball or softball. Give your best throw in another exhibit that pits you against major leaguers in a simulated showdown. Stroll past the Signature Wall that displays autographs of famous players who used the Louisville Slugger, including those in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Endure a little noise and dust to see where raw wood is turned into the famous bats by specialized woodworkers. Perhaps you will witness the creation of a bat that will make the next world record.

At the end of the factory tour receive your own miniature bat as a reminder of your visit. Shop at the museum store for amazing items. Purchase a personalized bat or order one online.

Visit the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory any day. Children under 5 years old are admitted free. The site has wheelchair accessibility. Find metered street and garage parking nearby. Stop at the Kentucky Science Center and other sites in the area. Your museum visit will provide added meaning for young and old the next time the announcer says, “Play Ball!”
