I found the Wild Horse Museum to be more of a gift shop than a museum. We went to the Museum with our toddler for a craft activity that was advertised online. We had thought that the museum offered a "paint a horse" activity, and were surprised to learn that the Museum stopped the event and didn't offer it the... More

Considering how big a part the horses are and have been to this area, the museum was a bit of a disappointment. It was basically a t-shirt shop with some pictures and a lady to talked about the horses. It could have been so much better, but it wasn't.

We come here every year on our trip to Corolla. Its a small place but has many cool things to check out, all centered around protecting the wild horses of Corolla. There are many nice gifts to purchase with the proceeds going to a great cause. Check it out!

Very small - I expected something more. I wouldn't call it a museum more like a display room. I would not waste time.

My wife and I visited this museum and enjoyed it immensely. We loved the way that this place takes care of the horses and supports them. If you ever have a chance to visit Corolla and pass by the museum, you must go into the museum and meet the people and see some of the historic pictures and facts about... More

Although not large, lots of fun facts about the horses with a little gift shop, lists activities scheduled for week, such as petting a rescued Mustang or riding ... the horses were rescued due to violence or accident that prevents them from living freely, worth the stop in historic Corolla

Four of us were taken by Monica for a two+ hour tour of the Corolla beaches where the horses live. This is the real deal, not some commercial outfit whose guides may or may not know their subject. Monica and the other guides at the Wild Horse Museum go way beyond the cursory and vague presentations that the others put... More
