During 2015, the Louisville Slugger Museum had 314,149 visitors, which beat the record of 303,037 set in 2013.
Museum officials believe that the high attendance was due to an exhibit of trading cards and longer hours during the summer. Officials are also hoping that trend continues throughout 2016 as the museum celebrates its 20th anniversary.
Starting in March of this year, Louisville Slugger Museum will be teaming up with Ripley’s Believe It or Not to showcase the Oddball exhibit. The exhibit will feature bizarre baseball treasures, including Babe Ruth’s Uniform from a charity game in 1939, a replica of Yankee Stadium made entirely of toothpicks, and a Hank Aaron sculpture made of candy bars. Museum visitors will also be able to see traditional Ripley’s items such as a shrunken head. The exhibit will run until January 2017.
Price for admission is $14 for Adults (13+), $13 for seniors, $8 for children (6-12) and children 5 and under are free. Admission includes a souvenir miniature bat after the tour. The museum is open 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Sunday.
