Description

from Brookgreen Gardens
Named One of the Top Ten Public Gardens in the United States by TripAdvisor! Young visitors love the Enchanted Storybook Forest, a collection of storybook playhouses based on a classic children’s story or nursery rhyme. It has fun interactive elements such as swings, climbing walls, monkey bars and more. Just for kids is the Children’s Discovery Room and the Brookgreen Detectives booklet that gives kids an adventure by following clues, making observations, sketching drawings, and even playing word games. When completed, they turn in the booklet and receive a Brookgreen Detectives sticker and prize!

Kids' also love the daily animal programs Mother Nature's Cafe, where they observe the animals as an interpreter feeds the animals a snack and the interactive Meet the Animals program. We have 'A Garden Room for Children' that stirs young imaginations with displays of plants and sculpture. There are wooded nooks to hide in, things to climb on, and sculptural animals to marvel at. There is even an elevated place for parents to sit and watch the magic of children learning as they play.

Seasonal favorite is the Butterfly House open daily April - October where hundreds of butterflies soar through the air. Tickets are $3 - adults and $2 - children in addition to garden admission for a 30-minute timed visit.

From its beginning in 1931, this non-profit outdoor museum with its majestic oaks and world-renowned sculpture it has been a place to restore your soul and renew your spirit but that’s not all. Everyday, Brookgreen offers a tours, programs, and exhibits for all ages. Relive history as you walk the Lowcountry Trail or take cruise on the pontoon boat. Then, it’s on to the only accredited zoo on the Carolina coast where you will see native animals in their natural habitats. Beautiful gardens, rich historical sites and gracious southern hospitality tempt you to return again and again which is one of the reasons the admission is good for 7 consecutive days!

Admission not valid during holiday festival, Nights of a Thousand Candles, or other special ticketed events. Tickets are not valid during the month of December.

"wonderful day"
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.

"So much more than statues now"

If, like me, you haven't visited in many years, I recommend going. The gardens are beautiful and filled with art, more than I remember. There's now a SC wildlife zoo which is interesting and fun for kids. The have embraced their enslaved African heritage with exhibits. The gift shop caters to those who want quality art and jewelry. A really wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

We only had a few hours, but enjoyed the grounds and a nice lunch at the restaurant. There was a cherry tree (of some variety) blooming outside the giftshop that had 6 butterflies hovering over the top of it. In February. Amazing to watch. Our only wish, it was 3 weeks later so we would have seen more flowers in bloom.

We enjoyed our afternoon at Brookgreen Garden. I'm sure it will be much more spectacular in a month but it was still very enjoyable. Lovely sculptures, nice gardens for winter and a delicious lunch in their cafe.

For a single day visit the ticket prices are a little steep. They are good for 7 days but I couldn't see the need for more than 2 visits max. The gardens were very impressive especially considering that we went in February. The artwork was also beautiful. The zoo was pretty pathetic though. If you're going expecting to be impressed just stick to the gardens.

Heard about this event at Brookgreen. Just 3 weekends in December. We got there before dusk and enjoyed some concerts and gift shopping. At dark, the whole gardens: ponds, pools, statues, trees are lit with real candles and string lights. One of the coolest things I've seen. They had bagpipers playing Christmas carols, Christmas tree exhibits, minature train exhibits and music on several stages. Food and drink was excellent and affordable. They had a big countdown for the main tree lighting that was like strung with 300,000 lights. Pretty awesome. Weather was mid 60's which made it extra special. Planning on going back!
