You can experience Shelby American for free and walk through the medium sized display of various cars Shelby made famous. Or you can pay for a guided tour of these same cars but with personal anecdotes of the man himself added in. Very interesting! You also go beyond the glass into the "factory" area and learn bits/pieces of the manufacturing aspect. If you enjoy cars or learning about famous Americans this is one stop you should make.

Shelby Heritage Center is a must stop for any sports car enthusiast. Mike Dempsey, who is Shelby American’s Historian/Tour Guide, is very passionate about the topic, which is to outline the life of Carroll Shelby, as well as the cars that he was involved in developing and racing. Visitors can self-tour during their business hours, but I would recommend attending the free guided tour which is at 10:30. The tour is unique in that the tour participants are involved, and provided small scripts so that they can role play different people that were involved in Carroll Shelby’s life story. A great experience. Seeing the different cars was awesome, and they also allow you to view the factory floor where they continue to build Cobra Mustangs, and last but not least, there is a wonderful gift shop.

Great working museum. The tour and tour guide are brilliant, actually brings you into being part of the story by recreating Carroll Shelby’s fight for supremacy against Enzo Ferrari. Sheer class.
The historical cars on display ............ AMAZING! Definitely recommended

If you are a car fan, you will be in heaven. This place is VERY cool. Lots of awesome cars on display. You can even take one home (if you have lots of extra $$$). The tour is FREE and the guide was very good. If I am being honest it was really hard to hear/understand him unless you were standing right in front of him. It was a very large group and at times I had difficulty. With all the $$$ coming in/out of this place they could stand to update their sound system. But that is my ONLY complaint. Next time I will look into the more personalized tours (small group) which at $40-50 sound very reasonable and even include some free swag. Speaking of swag, there is a very large gift shop with every imaginable piece of merch you could get and the prices aren’t half bad.

We visited this attraction on 03/08 and got there just as the free tour was starting. The tour lasts a good hour. The history of the Shelby brand is enough of a draw for the tour, but the explanation of the cars you look at is a bonus.
After the indoor portion, you are allowed into the factory area in the viewer gallery to see the Shelby’s in various stages of completion.
Some of the cars on display are for sale with no price attached, but as they say, if you have to ask you can’t afford it. Co-located in the building is a gift shop.
Whether you are a Shelby or Ford fan or not, you must visit this hidden gem.

Unique museum and assembly facility all under the same roof. Several important Shelby vehicles on display in the museum portion. Guests are allow into a protected area of the production facility for a first-hand look at new Shelbys as they are transformed into high performance machines. Nice gift shop area and, if so inclined, you can order your new Shelby on site.

TA advertises paying to book this tour... don’t! It’s 100% free and at your leisure. One of our uber drivers told us about this place and it has easily become my favorite thing to do in Vegas. If you’re into old cars, the Carroll Shelby story, or his legacy of giving, this will be the place for you... about 20ish cars in total, but you can walk into the factory and see m still repairing and building today. Awesome place with a great gift shop for Shelby fans.

Went here with my son and wife while in Vegs. Free to get in, many cars to view and get info on, plus the ability to see the shop where they work on cars. Huge gift shop where you can find just about anything Shelby related.

My wife also liked the Ford vs Ferrari movie and enjoyed this tour. The info shared is more about the personalities of the people who made awesome (and very successful) things happen, and not so much the cars. Our tour guide was great. He picked people out of the crowd to role play Carol Shelby and Enzo Ferrari (and others) and gave them scripts to read. Carol and Enzo had bad blood between them going back to what each did in WW2 which motivated them to compete against each other years later in the racing world. Really cool inside info and a fun tour.

Apparently, we lucked into visiting on a very cool day. They were having a Ford vs. Ferrari experience the day we were there and had a bunch of cool stuff going on including free food, virtual pit crew challenge and autograph signing by the stunt drivers for the movie. So I'm not sure what it would look like on a typical day, but I know they have some of the old Shelby race cars on display all the time, plus the shop in back where they are converting new cars to the Shelby package.
