Wild Horse Museum
Old Corolla Village
1129 Corolla Village Road
Corolla, NC 27927
Tucked in quaint Old Corolla Village you will find the Wild Horse Museum operated by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, caretakers of the wild horse herd. The museum welcomes visitors year-round to provide free information about the wild Spanish Mustangs that roam the northern beaches of the Currituck Outer Banks. The museum includes touch exhibits for children, a wall-sized aerial map of the horse’s range, video displays, and friendly staff to answer questions about how to see the horses as well as learn about their historic significance. Children’s activities such as live mustang visits, horse painting and mustang rides are offered during the summer months. Sales in our gift shop help fund efforts to preserve and protect the horses. Admission is free and nominal fees apply to children’s activities.
Wild Horse Museum Store
Scarborough Faire Shopping Village
1177 Duck Road, Suite 32
Duck, NC 27949
Our sister store, the Wild Horse Museum Store, is located in Scarborough Faire Shopping Village in Duck. Inside our mission-related store you will find horse related souvenirs such as locally made pottery and jewelry whose sale supports efforts to protect and preserve the wild Spanish Mustangs. Staff is always available to answer questions about how to see the horses (take a trip with us!) and provide information on their historic significance. Outside among the shady trees, activities include weekly “Mustang Rides” where you have the opportunity to ride a formerly wild horse, and “Paint a Horse” a popular opportunity to paint your own wood mustang to take home. The Wild Horse Museum also offers a wide selection of horse-related merchandise that make great gifts and souvenirs. All proceeds from both locations fund the management efforts of the wild horse herd.
The Corolla Wild Horse is available to speak to your group or classroom. When and where appropriate, we will bring one or two of our formerly wild horses that are awaiting adoption. Call 252-453-8002 for more information.
The CWHF staff spends countless hours educating visitors both on the beach and behind the dunes year round. Our primary focus is to create awareness regarding the Wild Horse Ordinance and to protect both horses and humans from danger.
