For all you motorheads, vintage and contemporary, this is a place that you must see. The museum is great with all the history of Shelby race cars and street cars. Inexpensive and much fun.

If you aren't really interested in cars than this isn't the place for you. It was on a tour I took but the guys in the group enjoyed it.

We didn't go to Las Vegas to see cars but I couldn't resist. The Shelby Factory is a short cab ride south of the city and the Tours run daily FOR FREE. In a country where everything has it's price, this has to be the best deal you will find. Right next to the Airport, the Shelby factory is open... More

If you like to see a bit of motoring history and pioneering, this is for you. Best to do the free tour at 10.00.am and get the full history told by an expert guide, who really knows his stuff about these wonderful muscle cars, Well worth a visit. They just require a donation to the foundation.

This is a short visit but worth it for any car buff. The fellow that gives the free tours is more knowledgeable than probably anyone about the history of the Shelby automobile and Carroll Shelby. The cars are built here and folks can have their own cars remodeled as desired as well. The cars a beautiful and several are for... More

We visited this FREE museum during our recent stay in Las Vegas. The tour guide was a Wikipedia-worthy gentleman who spent 40 years at Ford. If you love Mustangs, Shelby cars, or muscle cars in general, it's worth the 90 minutes to see some history. They also work on current Mustangs, and there were lost of them in their pristine...

If you love cars and car history you will love visiting this shop. You do a self guided tour, allowed to take lots of photos and if you're lucky someone will be there talking about the cars. Oh yes, there's a large gift shop also. Young men especially love this place.
