It was a small store with a vast selection of merchandise relating to the wild horses and surrounding area. Prices were very reasonable. Also took donations for the horses, but no pressure to donate.

We have ended up stopping here every time we are in the area. And there is always something different and new. This time they had a horse that was rescued when he was little and was now back looking for a new home. We were able to pet him and find out more about what happens once they are removed... More

I was very impressed with all the information and wonderful gifts at the museum. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful with everything to do with the wild horses. And very protective of them. We made sure we purchased a few beautiful items for gifts for loved ones knowing that the proceeds go to protect the horses.

We always take a morning and walk around Historic Corolla when visiting Corolla Beach. The Wild Horse Museum is a small shop in the middle of the small buildings by the Lighthouse and Historic area. Not much to see or do, but we always end up walking into it every year.

The exhibits are small and a bit cerebral, so I was glad I was alone and not with my toddler, but for older kids this would be great. Just from looking at the exhibits you can get most of the history of the herd and some development history of the banks. There was a video playing while I was there.... More
