$5 February Returns to Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Muhammad Ali Center

(January 28, 2016)...

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (January 28, 2016) — Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and the Muhammad Ali Center, partners in downtown Louisville’s Museum Row on Main, have teamed up to offer $5 admission at both attractions for Kentucky and Indiana residents throughout the month of February.

The promotion encourages locals to enjoy these wonderful attractions that are close to home. Thanks to $5 February, Kentucky and Indiana residents can escape a cold winter day and experience world-class, indoor entertainment without having to travel very far or spend a lot of money.

To take advantage of the offer guests must show proof of residency in Kentucky or Indiana, such as a driver’s license or alternate ID while purchasing tickets. Others in the party will also receive the $5 admission, a substantial savings over $9 – $14 regular ticket prices. The offer cannot be combined with other discounts, and does not apply to special tours or events.

As an added bonus, special offerings by the Muhammad Ali Center and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts are also included in $5 February, described below:
