The last factory tour of the day leaves 45 minutes before closing, but please allow 90 minutes to fully enjoy your museum experience. Factory tours last approximately 30 minutes. Guests will see bats being made on every tour, every day. Allow 2 hours to enjoy the entire museum and factory experience. Everyone receives a miniature souvenir bat at the end of the tour! Personalized bats can be ordered when you arrive for pick-up after your tour, or they can be shipped.
