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.

No tigers when we stopped by. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT to my kids! I recommend calling ahead of time to see if the tigers are actually there or not... We were pretty busy and didn't have time to make it back at a different time or day.

Our family of 5 wanted to do this as when do you ever get a chance to see a tiger up close? It was over $200 with tax and the time you get with the animals is VERY brief. Plus for the $200 it was only for 1 8X10 picture, it was another $150 for the internet link to all... More

My daughters really wanted to do this and talked me into it. I am so glad we did. The experience was great. We will have these memories (and photos) for a life time. How many times do you have the opportunity to hold a 1 month old tiger! We paid for the full package, and was glad we did.

There's an option to take pictures with a baby tiger and/or monkey but we did not. The line for photos was ridiculously long and expensive. We did enjoy watching the tigers in the glass enclosure.

Very expensive to have photos taken or visit the main location, we didn't do either. Enjoyed watching the tigers and cubs play at the Barefoot Landing location.

It was fantastic. We spent $200. You get a picture with a monkey, tiger and a cub. If you think it's expensive? Look at it this way, if they were asking for donation to help feed, house our pay vet bills, would u help? Yes you would. It's worth the money and you get to scratch it of your bucket... More

For the first person just to take a picture with a tiger cub was $100.00. The only good thing was if you dished out the hundred (WHICH WE DID NOT) it was $25 every additional person.

We had the best time here. The tigers were so cute, and to be able to have one sit on your lap while you feed it, is amazing. A fantastic experience you can't miss.
