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!

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. The exhibit will be open daily and is included in garden admission.

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.

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.

We went to park to see the sights, they have beautiful landscaping, many sculptures, but this was 10 days after the storms hit in SC so they had many areas closed. Were little disappointed that everything cost extra, boats, transportation vehicles, butterfly house, I would think butterfly house would have been free with admission. Tickets are good for 6 days. Zoo portion was closed. I would have thought tickets would be discounted due to so much closed.

Huge collection of statuary set in a beautifully manicured garden. Nice zoo area, partially flooded from hurricane when we were there😔. Nice butterfly area, $3 a person. Take your time and enjoy each carefully crafted setting.

We have been to a lot of gardens in different states and this is one of my favorites. The paths really encourage you take your time, relax, and wander. When we visited it was overcast and a little rainy so the gardens were very mysterious and moody. The sculptures are presented in different ways so you do not get bored. They are funny, sad, poignant and very entertaining. I think going on a sunny day, when it is busier would make for a very different experience but we loved our visit.

This is a nice place to visit to enjoy nature in some quiet. Amazing sculptures here. It was great to be away from the fast pace of Myrtle Beach. Well worth the 20 minute ride.

We bought tickets on groupon for the gardens. Great thing about this place is that once you buy your ticket, it is good for 7 days. While we can't comment on the entire gardens, the parts we did see were absolutely incredible. We enjoyed the zoo, except for seeing the empty honeybee house. We could tell they were already setting up the lights for some wintertime/Christmas event. The sculptures are amazing. There are so many, they literally are everywhere you look! I think the butterfly house should be included with admission, but it is extra. This place is just too much to see in one day!
