The story of the great American pastime told through the history of the world-famous bat; a must-see for baseball fans. – Overview
From the six-story steel bat visibile from miles away to the recorded memories of great moments in baseball, the Louisville Slugger Museum is a true testament to our love of the game. Learn about America's favorite pastime through multimedia exhibits, visit the replicated baseball diamond, feel a Major League pitch and tour the Louisville Slugger factory.
Louisville Slugger is the best-known brand of bats in the world, made since 1884. A favorite of such greats as Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle, the bat's signature white ash wood and burned-in stamp is a part of baseball history.
Uniquely Louisville – The Slugger Museum is one of the few uniquely Louisville attractions that about a truly world-famous item; namely, the LOUISVILLE SLUGGER!!! The Museum is eye-catching from the get-go with an enormous bat outside the museum. Along with the nostalgia of the Louisville Slugger, the Louisville Science Center/IMAX, Main Street, and the Waterfront are all within walking distance of the Museum. This would be my suggestion for the best of distinctively Louisville Family Outings!!!
A Ball! – This is one of the greatest museums. Not only is it fun for kids, it's also great for adults. Home of the World's Largest Baseball Bat!
A nice tribute to baseball – While today's headines talk about baseball using words such as steroids and labor disputes, the Slugger Museum is a chance to view baseball in a simpler, more enjoyable perspective.
Make sure you start with the brief movie, which then takes you directly into the museum as the screen rises after the film (nice touch).
While the exhibits are enjoyable and educational, the part that really makes it worthwhile is the tour of the factory itself. This is no concocted display, this is the real thing. You are walked through the factory and view the entire manufacturing process at a safe distance. And when you leave, you get to take a minature Slugger bat with you.
My only complaint was that the big bat in front was being renovated while we were there, so all of my photos will show it being held by a crane.
