Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory#5 in Best Things To Do in Louisville
Preferred by legends like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Ted Williams, the Louisville Slugger is undeniably the most famous bat in baseball. And to learn about its production, history and about baseball in general, you come to the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Highlights include a factory tour and Bud's Batting Cage, where museum patrons can hit with replica bats once used by superstars like Ruth and Williams.

A giant baseball bat leans against the main building of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, making it easy to spot. You'll find it in the museum-heavy West Main district of downtown Louisville. The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. During the summer, the museum offers extended hours. Admission costs $14 for adults and $8 for kids between the ages of 6 and 12; children 5 and younger enter for free. Visit the official website for further details.
