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.

Yes, the Corolla Wild Horse Fund offers tours year round! I would recommend calling them to find out what times and availability look like for the week that you are there. Enjoy!
