Loved everything about this place. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. It was during their fall festival and what a wonderful time we had. All the staff was wonderful.

Definitely worth the admission price and the ticket is good for 7 days which is great because it would take that long to enjoy the 9000 acres, we only had one day so we only got to see the Butterfly House and some of the gardens, can't wait to go back next year and see more

First, I must respond to the "bored" and "cheapskate" reviewers - apparently, you don't like art, history, culture, gardening and farming, trees, wild and man-made scenic venues, boat and bus tours into former plantation areas, including rare long-needle pine forest, wildlife and domesticated animals, butterflies, acres to hike (or ride), architecture, food, including dining at quaint cottage, sculpture in-door and...

Brookgreen Gardens is a 9,000 acre wonderland. It has a small zoo, a butterfly house, indoor and outdoor sculpture everywhere, fountains, and, of course, gardens. We were there for Harvest Festival weekend and there were fall decorations, vendors, activities for kids, and lots of food. There was also a juried small sculpture exhibit in two exhibit halls that was wonderful.... More

We purchased two senior tickets(65 or older) for twelve dollars each that were good for a week. We came back almost every day. It is difficult to take it all in on one day. The large live oaks dripping with spanish moss create an environment that is quite different than any other Garden we have ever visited. The thousands of... More

Fabulous place for soothing the weary soul! Gorgeous sculptures that even someone who's not an art lover would appreciate and enjoy! The placement of the art and poetry among the garden plantings is well done, as are the gardens themselves. Fun little educational zoo area. Thank goodness the pass ($14 I think) is good for 7 days, as we needed... More
