T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is quite possibly the country's only FREE living tiger museum. Located inside Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, it offers families the opportunity to see tigers up close, through glass, absolutely free of charge. For those interested in meeting a tiger or an ape in person, we offer (for a fee)the opportunity to pose with one of the animal ambassadors for a photo. The animals spend only a couple hours per day, in the late afternoon, at T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station and funding generated from our photos and gift shop sales help support various wildlife conservation projects we conduct worldwide through our Rare Species Fund. We are open from mid-March to mid-October and hours of operation can be found by calling our listed telephone number.

There's a free show to generate interest in visiting their TIGERS Reserve.. There's a fee for pictures and mingling with the cubs. I do believe it's best venue for kids at Barefoot. The actual TIGERS Reserve is about 30 minutes away and cost $$$ per ticket.

My husband and I participated in the T.I.G.E.R.S. experience at Myrtle Beach. Only in Australia have I had an animal experience comparable to this one. We met tiger cubs, lion cubs, wolf pups, a serval cub, a binturong, a lynx cub, a chimp, a gibbon, Bubbles the elephant and had our picture taken with a 900 lb Liger. Just meeting... More

This place is truely remarkable, seriously, there is no place like this in the entire country. Being a television producer of a series solely about training and the well being of exotic animals, I can honestly say that I haven't seen such beautifull animals anywhere else in the country. All of them were happy, well trained and living under the... More

A great experience with baby animals. I loved the photos and meeting all of the little "animal ambassadors". If you have your photo taken here you get a discount for the Myrtle Beach Safari tour, which takes place twenty minutes south. Both things should not be missed if you are in the Grand Strand area. Both seem a little experience,... More

They bring up the tigers from another reserve; it is in the picturesque Landing shopping area. The tigers were not there at the time we went.
