A Visit to The Shelby Heritage Center
How much horsepower can you handle?
Start your engines! Shelby American has a new home, the Shelby Heritage Center, located right off the strip and just a stone’s throw away from Town Square. The new digs are much easier to get to than the old Shelby Museum which was located near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In addition, the space is larger and all under one roof, they have a wide-variety of merchandise for sale including auto parts, and their inventory on display is ever-changing.
The Shelby Heritage Center showcases over 30 historic and modern Shelby vehicles in a 10,000 square foot space including concept cars, prototypes, and legendary models dating back over 50 years. Visitors are welcome Monday through Saturday 9am – 6pm and Sundays 10am – 4pm. Free guided tours are given Monday through Friday at 10:30am and 1:30pm and on Saturday’s at 1:30pm, only. The center does close on holidays.
In addition to the Heritage Center, you can also watch Shelby muscle cars being created from the sidelines of the 113,000 square foot production and manufacturing area of the building. Everything from pre-assembly to the painting booths is housed under a single roof.
The Shelby Heritage Center presents an interesting glimpse into the world of performance car manufacturing and is a must see attraction for all motor-heads visiting Vegas.
UPDATE: The Shelby Heritage Center no longer offers a shuttle service. Call (702) 942-7325 or visit their TOUR PAGE for detailed information and driving directions.
