    Fun free tour
    Not too much to see here unless you do the VIP tour but the cars on display are worth dropping by this free museum if you are a car buff or a mustang or Shelby lover. You can slip by here and do this tour in less than 30 minutes. We enjoyed it very much!

    Great encounter with Mr laViollette.
    I was at Shelby American with my spouse on September 6 2023. I met Mr. Vince laViollette vice president of Shelby American. I had the pleasure and honor to have a chat with him. He was not only generous of his Time but he gifted me with a signed poster and made me sit on his chair in his office. Thank you Mr. laViollette for your kindness. You made a long Time Shelby fan very happy. By the way, I cherish very much the diecast he gave me. Bravo to all members and employees of Shelby American. Keep up the good work.👍

    Free to wander round and see some amazing cars
    We got the Deuce (bus) up the strip to visit Shelby. If walking follow the arrow on the building along Windy Road to reach the entrance via the pedestrian friendly walkway. Once inside, just do the self guided tour and wander amongst some amazing cars and lots of info.

Maybe the tour provides some incredible insights. A wonderful dozen cars. Gift shop is larger that museum space. Pimping merch more than anything. Took much more time getting to the building than spent inside. Taxi to Shelby American had been driving 4.5 years in Vegas and never heard of the place. Uber driver back, from Las Vegas had never had a pick up or drop off.

Great display of cars and merchandise! The VIP Tour was good, didn't really see a difference in that and a regular tour other than the bag of merch, but grateful nonetheless. Renee was our guide and she had passion for the history and I could tell she enjoyed her job! I would have liked a close up tour inside the factory area and engaging with the techs in there.

Sad that our tour guide didnt have any technical information. Didnt really "see" anything behind the scenes that everyone couldnt see thru the viewing window. Our vip $60 bag should have some choices to pick from; i personally dont use water bottles or wear ball caps. Bottom line-not worth the price as nothing unique yo substantiate it.

This was a great spot for car enthusiasts. I arrived just before the hour so joined in the VIP tour which was well worthwhile. We even got to speak to Vince who designs and races the cars. Great experience.

It was a great experience. Learned a lot about history of C. Shelby and the cars were amazing! We signed the wall in the shop, pretty cool.
