This was ok, but does not require much time. It was more like a gift shop about horses than a museum. It only had a small section with informaiton on the horses.

It's little, but a nice place to stop in and see; all the funds raised go right back into taking care of the horses. They have some great pics of the horses on the beach, too. We had our tour through here and our guide drove all over the island, until we were able to see several horses in their... More

One of the structures in Old Currituck Village was home to the Wild Horse Museum. I did see a Museum Store but nothing that specifically mentioned the Museum. Upon entering the Museum store/ wild horse tour company building, I found the museum. There was a small room with some pamphlets, a TV screen, and a map of some kind. The... More

This is a very small museum but is well worth a visit. We learned a lot about the wild horses on the island. We were extremely impressed with the lady that hosted us. The museum is free, and has a nice gift shop, This is definitely worth your time.

The center is housed in an old schoolhouse with a gift shop, displays and a film about the horses. Entrance is free. They work to protect and care for the famous wild horses. You can take a very informative two hour tour in an enclosed 4 wheel Suburban to see the horses and to learn about this different area. Adult... More

The Museum does not have a charge and is the only group fighting for the support of the wild horses. My wife and I went on a tour and the vehicle was not open to the elements. It is the most reasonably priced and supports the horses. The guide was informative and we saw many horses; but the guide was... More

It's not a museum it's a gift shop with a video of the horse-story. The video is somewhat gory, telling tales of horses being hit by cars until they were moved to the far north end of the island. The gift shop is sparse - not nearly as nice as the one two blocks away at the lighthouse. You can... More

Went in here after the lighthouse. Wonderful horsey stuff for sale, which went to the charity. I particularly liked one hoodie that was very cheap but nothing in my size. The wonderful (horse loving) lady at the register called up their Duck location to see if they had one in my size. They did, so we went there to purchase.... More

This is a cute little shop with great souvenirs and information about the wild horses. It is worth a stop in. Everything you purchase, a portion goes towards the horses. It could be vet care for sick or injured horses or the maintence of fences ect. They also have a program where you can "adopt" a horse for $50.00. We... More

We were not sure if we were going to do a tour until we found this place. All the money from here helps the horses. Only Outback tours gives a little money to help the horses too. This is a learning experience that needs to be preserved.
