Our Take

Baseball is such a cool sport with a long and incredibly fascinating history, and the Louisville Slugger is a small facet with a long and storied past. On a visit here, you can see actual pro player bats being made, hold game-used bats from greats like Mickey Mantle and Johnny Bench, and admire the world's largest baseball bat, and more. Plus, every visitor receives a mini replica Louisville Slugger, which is one of the greatest travel souvenirs in the country.

“Family-owned since 1884”

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, a museum located in Louisville, Kentucky's "Museum Row" in the West Main District of downtown, showcases the history of the Louisville Slugger brand of baseball bats made by Hillerich & Bradsby, and of baseball in general. Inside the production of the bats is presented, along with historical examples of bats (such as an 1880s Pete Browning bat they recently discovered or the bat that Babe Ruth used to hit his last home run as a Yankee). Outside is a six-story bat that appears to be leaning against the museum building but is completely free standing, the bat weighs 68,000 pounds. (It is billed as the world's largest bat although it is hollow and made of steel.) The building also serves as their corporate headquarters and a production facility. Guided factory tours begin at 9:00 am, and the last factory tour of the day departs one hour before closing. Factory tours last approximately 30 minutes. Guests now have the opportunity to see bats being made seven days a week. Bat making demonstrations will take place in the factory when full production is not scheduled. Visitors normally allow 2 hours for the entire museum and factory experience. Everyone receives a miniature souvenir bat at the end of the tour! We are also the site of the World's Largest Baseball Bat.
