Not a lot of shopping to do here, unless you have little ones, but they have information about the horses. When we were in they had pictures of the babies that were born just that week. I bought a Christmas ornament and a cup.

The guide in the museum provided excellent and in depth information about the horses and background. We watched a video and looked at maps. We did not use their tour company since we had booked before our visit.

Did a two hour tour with this group. Loved the fact that the proceeds go to support the horses (not just commercial profit!) . The tour guide was knowledgeable and fun!

Even though the exhibits don't seem to change, we always visit the Wild Horse Museum when we're in Corolla. The information is interesting, and there's a pretty interesting gift shop. Wish the exhibits changed more, but still a nice place to stop by.
