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.

Gorgeous huge and well run but put your kids on a leash because it is very crowded and very subdued lighting beautiful sculptures and lovely trees dropping with lights, but tastefully done. Summer offerings include sitting among giant oaks and listening to wonderful concerts - bring chairs and your cooler !

We received annual memberships for Brookgreen Gardens at Christmas. Made our first trip this week. Beautiful even this time of year. Peaceful especially this time of year. We spent 6 hours browsing the sculptures and visiting the animals. Could watch the otters and the eagles for hours. Had lunch at the little kitchen restaurant and the food was fresh and delicious. Just loved the soup! We'll be making regular trips to Brookgreen to see how nature changes over the coming months. What a jewel of a place!

Even though it was Winter (December) we enjoyed the gardens and the vast array of statues all over the place. The art galleries were beautiful and I can only imagine how gorgeous this place is in the Spring and Summer months.
