Extended Hours; $5 after 5pm Starts July 1
Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is going “extra innings” this summer with extended hours, and offering a special discounted admission price.
Beginning July 1 and ending August 11, the museum will be open until 6 PM Sunday through Thursday and 8 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. This is the first time in the attraction’s history that it will be open to the public until 8PM. The museum typically closes at 5PM the rest of the year.
To enjoy the full experience, guests should arrive no later than one hour before closing. The final factory tour departs 30-minutes before closing.
$5 After 5PM:
Along with the newly expanded hours, a special discounted rate will be offered during the summer after 5PM. For any tour that begins after 5PM admission will be $5 per person. The “$5 After 5PM” promotion runs July 1 – August 11 to coincide with the expanded hours.
Regular admission is $11 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for children ages 6 -12.
“Baseball is the game of summer and that’s always our busiest season too,” said Anne Jewell, Executive Director at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “Our team is happy to go extra innings if it means we’re able to welcome more guests and provide them with the best possible experience,” she said.
Included in the cost of admission this summer is entrance to the museum’s original exhibit, Big Leagues, Little Bricks, featuring baseball artwork built with LEGO® bricks. The exhibition showcases masterpieces from renowned artist Sean Kenney, one of only 13 LEGO Certified Professionals in the world. Kenney’s works include hip portraits of baseball superstars, dynamic conceptual sculptures of iconic baseball moments and a show-stopping replica of historic Wrigley Field.
Along with the stunning artwork, the exhibit also provides a hands-on opportunity for guests to build their own art created by LEGO bricks.
Big Leagues, Little Bricks joins an already impressive line-up at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Admission to the museum also includes interactive exhibits, a short feature film, historic memorabilia, the World’s Biggest Baseball Bat and an award-winning factory tour. As an added bonus, all guests receive a free souvenir mini-bat at the end of their factory tour.
