I own a 2008 Shelby GT, and getting a chance to see where it was put together was an awesome experience. Get there before 10:30am M-F and take the free tour. The museum has quite the collection of Shelby cars from over the years including the very first CSX ever produced. A mind blowing experience for me, I'd do it all again on my next vegas trip.

“Not just for mustang lovers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went for the 1030 guided tour on saturday and found all the stories on Carroll shelby and explanations of the exhibits fascinating. Also loved looking at all the different cars - mustangs including super snakes, cobras and some dodges including a viper. The tour guide was really friendly, interacted with the group and did a good job of organising a large group of people so that everyone could see. Liked the shelby shop, which had some nice, if expensive, things as well.

“A must do for Shelby/Mustang fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

We visited here on a Saturday so sadly did not get a tour of the factory but did get a tour of the museum. It is free and our tour guide was very informative - if you are going to visit aim to be around at the time the tour begins - we learnt a lot! There is also a gift shop, mostly selling Shelby T-Shirts. Very enjoyable and worth a stop - lots of lovely cars to look at.

Shelby American, Inc. is a museum as well as aretail shop for all things Shelby. The museum features all the cars that have received the Shelby touch. Ranging from the AC Cobra through to the 2013 GT500 Super Snake. They also have factory tours, where you get to see how Shelby cars are built. The retail shop offers a huge range of t-shirts, die cast models, and various gifts. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

“Interesting & lust-inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

We were on vacation to Las Vegas with our 2 young adult sons. We toured the Shelby Factory & Museum one morning after seeing a brochure at our hotel. It was fascinating. I think we all lusted after getting a Shelby Cobra or transforming a Mustang. The down-side: no free samples. :)
