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.

Since hearing about this, I have wanted to visit the preservation station. There is really no other place in the US that allows you to interact with baby tigers, see a month old tiger cub, feed an adult tiger, and hold a chimpanzee. The Myrtle Beach Safari was a little out of our price range this trip, but we were... More

I joined my nieces and nephew for their first experience at the Preservation Station (my second time). We were all delighted with the animals we were allowed to interact and take photos with; to include an adorable chimp, sweet white tiger cub, and tiny, six-week-old lion cub! Absolutely delighted!

This was a once in a lifetime experience. We got to hold a tiger, a chimpanzee and a lion. We also got chance to feed the big ones and bottle feed the smaller ones! Would definitely recommend it.

I was a little apprehensive about this at first do I researched the company and was satisfied that they are a genuine preservation company. My husband and son loved it. Expensive but if the money goes to a good cause too it's well worth it.

After researching "zoos" and "animals" on the Myrtle Beach site, I found this intriguing site, T.IG.E.R.S. Both of our grandchildren, who were celebrating their thirteenth birthdays, were traveling with us for their adventure into adulthood. We planned a very special vacation for this occasion, and since they both love animals, we decided that this was a wonderful chance to see... More

Amazing experience with pictures with the critters. We splurged and had pictures taken with the monkey and tiger cubs.

Hubby surprised me for our anniversary. Exactly as advertised and tour information was clearly described. Very professionally run and obviously very well cared for animals. Knowledgeable and very friendly staff and trainers. Unique opportunity to see up close and pet some exotic furry creatures. Phenomenal photographs were worth the price to memorialize the event. Excellent $ value for the experience.... More

The hours you can actually see the tigers does vary, but they are beautiful to see. Having a picture taken is expensive but the proceeds benefit the animals they help shelter.

The experience holding the different animals was wonderful but I held about 6 different animals in 10 minutes and felt very rushed for the huge amount of money I had to pay. I must say this though, they took a ton of pics so I left with a CD with about 100 pics on it!
