Louisville, Kentucky: Louisville Slugger Factory
You have to admit -- this is one odd-looking lobby. You can sit on the bottom inside of the glove.
It's in the back of the Louisville Slugger factory, right by the riverfront in downtown Louisville. It's the most famous name in baseball bats, and more than half of all major league players use their bats.
The factory has a relatively small museum for visitors. The actual factory tour is the best part (no pictures, by the way), as visitors can see major league bats actually being made. At the end, each tourist gets a small souvenir bat. Judging by the line at the personalized regulation-sized bat desk, that wasn't enough for most people.
