LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After temporarily closing its doors on March 16 to protect guests and team members, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory has announced the reopening of its museum and factory tours on June 11.
Following the guidance of Gov. Andy Beshear, the museum will implement additional safety precautions including social distancing floor graphics, reduced tour sizes, stepped-up sanitizing protocols and requiring masks for all guests and team members. The museum will provide masks to guests who arrive without one.
Guests are strongly encouraged to purchase timed tickets online at SluggerMuseum.com to assist with safe traffic flow throughout the attraction.
Factory tours will be limited to 10 guests per tour to allow for social distancing. The recently renovated tour includes a newly-recorded narration during the experience, allowing Tour Guides to assist guests with social distancing and other safety procedures at each stop. For the first time ever, guests will be permitted to take pictures inside the factory during tours. Flash-photography and videography will not be allowed.
Beginning June 11, the museum will be open 5 days a week, and will continue to assess and adjust its schedule as needed moving forward.
Museum Hours beginning June 11:
Thursday-Saturday – 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sunday – 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Monday – 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tuesday and Wednesday – Closed
Vulnerable population hours: Monday & Thursday – 8 a.m.-10 a.m.
“We are thrilled to reopen the doors of the museum, and we’ll keep the safety of our guests and team members as the highest priority,” said Anne Jewell, vice president and executive director at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “The entire museum team has worked diligently to ensure we’re following all recommended guidelines while still creating an extraordinary experience for each guest walking through our doors. We’ll be focused on fun, and serious about safety.”
The Museum Store, which reopened on May 23, will continue following all safety guidelines. In addition to bats, apparel and other gifts at the Museum Store, 4-packs of Maskoni non-medical masks are available for purchase. The anti-bacterial, reusable masks are produced by Bionic Gloves, the museum’s sister division at Hillerich & Bradsby Co.
