This place is awesome! It's so beautiful! The small zoo at the far side of the gardens is amazing as well. My 4 year old and I went into the butterfly tent and what an experience! It's totally worth the extra $3 to enter. I highly recommend seeing this place. Take your camera! You won't regret visiting the gardens one... More

So many different types of art, the statues, the gardens and more. Lots of things to see and do even a wild life area. I must see.

Many people come to coastal SC for the great beaches and never think of going to Brookgreen. What a mistake! Brookgreen is a must see. The dailey rate is good for seven days and you will need all of them. I've lived in SC for 11 years, visited for 30 , and still enjoy Brookgreen . Must see.

This is a great place for a beautiful walk. Our kids enjoyed it as well. Seeing the animals in their natural habitat was special.

Regardless of the time of the year you visit there is something colorful in the gardens. A special small garden where little ones can touch and sit on things to the zoo. The pontoon boat ride through the old rice fields is a great leaning experience.

The gardens are beautiful. It can be hot in August. Take a bottle of water with you. Definitely a hat. There is an extra charge for the trek trip and boat ride but I would definitely recommend taking them. Admission price is good for 6 consecutive days so you can leave and return.

This is a beautiful, large, varied and historically interesting attraction in the Myrtle Beach area. They tell the story of the rice and lumber industries which took place with the use of slaves in the early days. It also has an inventory of approximately 450 sculptures (both indoors and outdoors) which are on display. Some were produced by the wife... More

We visited Brookgreen in late August. Not a lot of flowers in late August, but we loved it non the less. We enjoyed the many statues, sculptures and poetry garden. We wandered around the zoo area and old rice plantation. We are looking forward to visiting again in the spring when the gardens will be in glorious full bloom.

The gardens were very beautiful and well kept. The art statues and Museums on the grounds were spectacular. Family friendly.. The small animal sanctuary was well laid out with a large variety of animals. Staff were very helpful. Cant wait to re-visit on my next trip to Huntington Beach, S.C.. .
