LSMF Launches Six After Six Program for Summer
Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory announced today a special Six After Six summer promotion that will allow guests to visit the museum for just $6 on any tour that begins after 6 p.m. The promotion runs July 1 through August 10, when museum hours are extended until 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The Museum’s extended summer hours July 1 – August 10 are:
- Monday—Wednesday: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Thursday—Saturday: 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Sunday: 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
“Baseball is the game of summer and that always happens to be our busiest season as well,” 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.
This marks the second-straight year for the expanded museum hours. The move was made to better serve museum guests and to accommodate an anticipated increase in summer attendance. The extended hours are also a result of the popular response from the factory’s weekend bat production. With baseball bats being produced each day of the week, guests are guaranteed to see bats being made on every tour.
Included in the cost of admission this summer is entrance to the museum’s original exhibit, Play Ball, Doc!: The Art of Warner Bros. Cartoons. The exhibit includes more than 70 original drawings, paintings and related objects used in the making of Warner Bros. cartoons from the 1930s through the 1960s. The exhibit shows, step-by-step, how animated films were painstakingly drawn by hand, a process now performed by computers.
Play Ball, Doc! 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.
