Reviewed 14 July 2014

Located in old town Corolla is a gift shop that all purchases will help fund the Wild Horses. Very reasonable prices and can walk to several other places of interest.

“One of those "Why not while we're there moments?"”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Not exactly what we expected but interesting enough. There was a friendly cat wandering around inside when we visited. Quick 10-15 min visit type of place.

“Quaint and cute, but not a large museum”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Like the other reviews it is mainly a gift shop to raise money to support the wild horse conservation. It does have one corner of house to show picture of the horses and a video of what happen in the 80s to create this fund. But they do have some cute things in there if you love horses or know someone that is a horse person! Signing to the place is kind of hard to read, we did the block once before finally seeing it and parking is scarce

“Great tour”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The guide was very informative about the houses and the community. I didn't want the tour to end! It is well worth the time and money to take at tour with this company!

“Small but nice!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

This museum is to promote the conservation of the wild horses. It is in a tiny one room school house and has a lovely gift shop. The money it raises goes towards helping the horses stay wild. If you are a horse lover then it's worth a stop.
