Close to the strip - quick cab ride. Free museum with lots and lots of very expensive cars for car nuts to droll over. Had a lovely gentleman give us a tour - he really, really liked to talk and it took about 2 hours because he talked so much. My son loved every minute but I along with the... More

We saw a sign for this while we were driving around Vegas in a hire car so it was easy enough to get to but you would need to drive or take a taxi to get here from the strip (unless they have a bus). The museum was cool with a number of Shelby cars including Daytona Coupes and Cobras... More

If you're a car guy or gal, you have to visit the Shelby Museum. They have more original Shelby's than you can shake a stick at. They even have Carol Shelby's Cobra #1. You can get up close to all of the car. You can even visit the shop floor where you are encouraged to sign your name on the... More

Stopped in on a Sunday, and the tour was not available. The store seemed pricy for promotional merchandise promoting the brand name. They had several cars on display but could have done a better job explaining the car and promoting it. But for the price it's hard to complain.

This is a combination museum and factory. On display are numerous original Shelby's and a few new ones plus pictures and a history of Carroll Shelby and how he got started. The new ones are for sale. There is a nice gift shop with a variety of Shelby miniature cars, pins, books, etc. There are tours of the factory available.... More

We took the free guided tour with Jim King, who is highly knowledgable. He answered to all of our questions and popped the hood of some cars for us. He gave us many anecdotes about Carroll Shelby ! I definitely recommend this tour to any car guy !!!
