Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory is offering evening visitors a discount at the downtown Louisville attraction.

The museum's Six After Six summer promotion will allow guests to visit the museum for $6 on any tour that begins after 6 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday. The promotion runs through Aug. 10.

Museum Executive Director Anne Jewell says summer is the attraction's busiest season. The museum is showing an exhibit on Warner Bros. cartoons that includes more than 70 original drawings, paintings and related objects used in the making of cartoons from the 1930s through the 1960s.

It's the second year the museum has expanded its operating hours to 8 p.m. on certain days. Kids age 5 and under are admitted free.
