Batter up! The stop at the Louisville Slugger Museum was well liked by all. Jason had said he has always wanted to go to the Louisville Slugger Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. Since we have a couple of kids that adore baseball, it certainly made sense to add it to our places to stop as we headed south.
Admission to the museum also includes a tour of their fully operational baseball bat factory. This was great! You’re not allowed to take pictures while on the tour, but you do get to see how they make baseball bats both by hand and by machine. It was really fun and interesting. As a bonus, our tour guide was very funny. Each person also gets a mini Louisville Slugger bat to take home. Sweet!
The rest of the museum includes many hands-on exhibits. You can try your arm at a pitching game and your test your speed on a catching game. You can test and check your baseball knowledge and trivia. You can hold onto bats that were actually used by some of the baseball legends. There is a giant baseball glove statue inside, that of course, you should take your picture by so that it matches the pictures you took next to the GIANT baseball bat out front. And if you are feeling up to it, you can head to the batting cages to feel like a real pro.
During the time of our visit, there was also a Ripley’s Believe It or Not exhibit. I think this was only there temporarily, but it was fun to walk through and see some of the crazy things.
All six of the Yustens would recommend stopping at the Louisville Slugger Museum. Batter Up!
