    It is amazing to watch the natural bats being carved down from solid pieces of wood. If you're a baseball fan, you must visit.

    Great place for a baseball fan to visit! No photos of bats being made allowed. Some great baseball artifacts here...like a mini hall of fame almost. Get a picture with the giant bat outside!

    I highly recommend ordering your personalized bat BEFORE you even enter the museum. That way, you won't be stuck waiting over two hours when you are just ready to go. :)

    Don't even bother trying to bring the mini souvenir Louisville Slugger onto an airplane in your check-in luggage. As the tourguide mentions, the bat will be confiscated by TSA at Louisville airport.
