Learn about the Wild Horses

The staff were very eager to share their knowledge about the history of the wild horses. I learned a lot. They also had some nice souvenirs for sale.

This is not a museum. There is only one poorly-done display. It is a gift shop to raise money for the horses. I took my 4-year old granddaughter and we were both disappointed.

Small museum and gift shop, but excellent focus on protecting the wild horses. Better for younger kids, my teens got bored quickly.

This is the only place I would recommend for a tour to the wild horses. There is also a good gift shop. The volunteers truly love the horses and will only allow what is in the best interest of the horses. They need our support.

Enjoyed it. Very small. Loved their work. When you buy things from them some of the money goes to the horses.

This organization is responsible for the care and protection of the Corolla wild horses. They are an amazing group who are dedicated to helping these beautiful horses. The museum and shop are wonderful, but the hidden gem is that they do tours to see the horses. While there are other groups that do tours, this is true only group that... More

The museum and gift shop support the wild horse fund to manage the wild Spanish horses! It is small but the staff is very helpful and informative!
