    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!

    Very cool tour, I was pleasantly surprised. I would do it again. I talked to the TSA guys at the airport, they just changed the guidelines & you ARE allowed to take the mini bats in your carry on now!

    One of the best museums I have ever visited!! Got myself a personalized bat with "jswishdaman" on it & picked up mini bats for my niece & nephew too!! You must visit whenever you go visit Louisville!

    The museum shows what is behind hitting a baseball, a replica major league dugout, and has the world’s largest baseball bat. This is a great place to go to teach your kids the history of baseball!

    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.

    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.

    If you're a fan of the game, after the factory tour take the tour of the bat vault where you can hold bats used by Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Henry Aaron and other legends.

    Made in America: You can visit the museum and take a tour of the Louisville Slugger factory, which is still making all of its baseball bats in the U.S.
