"wonderful day"
Reviewed March, 2015
Really informative. Started with a brief video about the gardens. We received a map and a little information from the welcome center. We chose to do a self guided tour but they offer guided tours for no additional fees. With the one day paid admission you can come back within 7 days for free. The boat tour is fun it's about 45 minutes. The "zoo" as animals of the time period. Lots to learn about slavery times. You will enjoy yourself. Sculptures were amazing.

"Beautiful and Relaxing"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

The gardens are a lovely, relaxing way to spend the day with lots of photo opportunities. The admission to the gardens is valid for 6 consecutive days so if you are staying close by, you may find enough to do for more than one day. While Brookgreen is known for its statues throughout the gardens, there is also a zoo that is fun to visit. And, there is currently an amazing Legos exhibit in the zoo area. The only thing I was underwhelmed by on this visit was the Butterfly House, which costs an additional $3 to enter. It is rather small and there were few butterflies present and not much variety.

The most beautiful gardens and sculptures. The zoo portion is also set up beautifully. We were able to visit during the Nature Connects Art with Lego Bricks exhibits. The Lego exhibits were mind boggling on how beautiful they are. The butterfly house was outstanding! Worth the extra price.

Decided to try something different while visiting Myrtle Beach. Saw there was a Groupon for discounted admission. Saw great reviews prior to purchasing. Definitely worth visiting the well planned layout of the sculptures and gardens, the zoo, and butterfly house(extra fee). Around 1800 sculpures of various sizes and materials, presented in various ways and locations. Tickets are good for 7 consecutive days.

There is just not enough time in one day to see this place. We went to the butterfly house and walked the zoo and walking in the trees and the through the gardens. We needed two more days to just wonder around. The place is so peaceful and has so very much to offer. I took over 500 pictures in just the little bit of time we were there. We will definitely have to go back. It is soooo worth the cost of admission.
