The Lego exhibit is not here this year, but we have "Ribbit the Exhibit" until July 9th. It's a charming exhibit of larger than life copper frog sculptures. Our guests have really been enjoying it!
Is the whole area wheelchair accessible including the boat ride?

Hi there, Yes most of the gardens are wheelchair accessible and the boat ride is also. Brookgreen has three wheel adult "strollers" that may be easier to push through some of the garden pathways.
