The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, is a museum and factory tour attraction located in Louisville, Kentucky's "Museum Row", part of the West Main District of downtown. The museum showcases the story of Louisville Slugger baseball bats in baseball and in American history. The museum also creates temporary exhibits with more of a pop culture focus, including collaborations with the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Coca-Cola, LEGO artists Sean Kenney and Jason Burik, Topps Trading Cards, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and Ripley's Believe It or Not!.
Coversations/Things we learned:
The bat factory and museum is a great place to visit for all baseball fans. Fans of all ages will enjoy being able to hold a game used bat by greats such as Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio. Children will enjoy getting the mini bats at the end of the tour and being able to order personalized bats. The museum is small but going through a working factory and learning about the work that goes into each bat is definitely worth a stop when in Louisville.
