Brookgreen Gardens Photos (23)

If you’re looking to add a splash of history, culture, and art to your Myrtle Beach stay, be sure to stop by the Brookgreen Botanical Gardens! Established in 1931, Brookgreen Gardens serves as a cultural center for the Myrtle Beach community. Designed in the shape of a butterfly with its wings spread, the grounds are filled with 300-year-old Oak trees, magnificent sculptures, splendid garden rooms and stunning flowers such as roses and perennials. Year round, there are beautiful parts of the garden for you to explore.

Made up of three main sections, the Sculpture Garden, the Lowcountry Center, and the Native Wildlife Zoo, this beautiful piece of nature— taking up more than 9,000 acres— is nestled just south of Murrells Inlet. Combining sculptures, wildlife, and history, all in the beautiful natural scenery of South Carolina, the Brookgreen Gardens are a beautiful attraction that you won’t want to miss.

The Sculpture Garden

With more than 2,000 works by 425 artists, Brookgreen Gardens is the largest collection of American figurative sculpture in the country. Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the collection is housed mostly outdoors, though the addition of indoor gardens has allowed for the collection and display of smaller works of art. 

The Lowcountry Center

Serving as the entrance to the Lowcountry Trail as well as the Lowcountry Zoo, the Craig E. Wall, Jr. Lowcountry Center features a gorgeous open-air courtyard complete with wildlife sculptures and plants native to the area. For an additional cost, guests may take a boat tour through the historic rice fields, enjoying the scenery, animals, and birds, and learn a little about the history of the South Carolina rice plantations.

The Native Wildlife Zoo

The only zoo accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums on the coast of North and South Carolina, The Native Wildlife Zoo only has animals who were bred and raised in captivity or who have suffered an injury or major disability— those who could not survive in the wild. Here, you can see gray foxes, bald eagles, river otters, egrets, blue herons, and more. Also available is the animals of the plantation exhibit, which includes Marsh Tacky ponies, oxen, chickens, and Spanish goats. Adjacent to the zoo is the Whispering Wings Butterfly experience, where guests are brought up-close and personal with many species of butterfly, and possibly see a new butterfly emerge from its cocoon and stretch its wings for the first time. 

Be sure to stop by the Brookgreen Gardens during your next Myrtle Beach vacation. Here, you can explore the grounds at your leisure, which makes for a perfect day whether it be a romantic excursion or a fun family outing. Your admission tickets are good for seven consecutive days! Book tickets today to enjoy this wonderful garden and many other great sightseeing tours on your next romantic Myrtle Beach getaway.

"Amazing place!"
Amazing place! You really need to spend the day! So much to see and learn. Lots of history involved. Loved the gardens. We found it very peaceful. I would really recommend this to everyone at any age. We were able to spend four days visiting brookgreen gardens. There is just so much gto take in. The gardens, low country, and the zoo. The pass is good for seven days. Take advantage if your ever in south carolina. Really must visit!
Tip: If possible try to spend at least two days dedicated to brookgreen gardens. There is just so much to see and learn. The guided tour and boat tour were my favorite. Check into the guest services building they have a short movie that educates you on brookgreen gardens. No fee. I was glad i watched it before roaming the gardens and sculptures.
