We only need your rsvp so that we know to look for you or to let you know if anything changes. If you choose not to rsvp or decide to come last minute that’s great too. Guided factory tours begin at 9:00am and continue every 20 minutes until the last tour of the day at 4:00pm. Factory tours last approximately 30 minutes. We cannot guarantee you will see full bat production on any tour. Visitors normally allow an hour and a half to 2 hours for the entire museum experience. Everyone will receive a miniature souvenir bat on the tour!
Directions:http://www.sluggermuseum.org/visitorguide.aspx (scroll down to the bottom)
Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is located on the corner of 8th Street and Main Street in the heart of downtown Louisville’s historic West Main district. You can’t miss us – just look for the world’s tallest bat!
The museum itself left a lot to be desired, but the factory tour was absolutely wonderful! It is amazing to realize all that goes into the making of one bat!

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
