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.

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.

Brookgreen Gardens will host 12 larger-than-life LEGO® brick sculpture installations in its Native Wildlife Zoo from April 8 – September 5, 2016. Created by Sean Kenney, renowned artist and children's author, "Nature Connects" is an award-winning exhibit currently touring the country. Made from almost 400,000 LEGO® bricks, the sculptures bring nature to life with a 6-foot tall hummingbird hovering over a trumpet flower, a deer family made from 48,000 bricks, a giant tortoise, a 7-foot long giant dragonfly, and more.

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.

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.

"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.

I love the beauty of this place, flowers, trees, sculpture, wildlife. The grounds are immaculate and gorgeous. There are at least 3 different tours with very knowledgeable guides who tell the history of Brookgreen. There are lots of places to just walk, or sit, to meditate and enjoy the surroundings. There is a butterfly house, a zoo of animals that are native to the area or the plantations. It is very kid friendly with lots for them to see and do. This summer they are featuring a lego exhibit with lego sculptures throughout the zoo area. It is amazing, for both adults and children! Their tickets are good for several days, it's a place you'll want to visit more than once.

This was pretty nice place. Little pricey but we found deal on Groupon. Not quite as many flowers as I had hoped. Lots of sculptures. It was nice to have a shuttle to get to zoo part cause it was 95 degrees.

Very pretty! You can explore the sculpture garden, the zoo, the otters, the bird aviaries, take a trip along old rice fields on a pontoon boat, and eat at one of the restaurants. There is tons to do for any age or any one. The tickets are good for 7 days after purchase. Additional activities such as the pontoon boat tour cost extra. There is a free shuttle that picks up and drops off all around the gardens. Bring water you can also purchase it around nay attraction, but it is $2 a bottle. The garden cafe was great for lunch and very clean I enjoyed the large pretzel and my husband enjoyed a turkey sandwich.
