I've been to Brookgreen Gardens many times over the past 25 years and there is always something new blooming. The admission fee is good for seven days. Save your tickets so you can come back. I would suggest breaking your visit into two days. There are several tours included with admission each day hosted by some of the 600 volunteers... More

It's not far from our winter home so we visit once a year or so. The artwork is great and the flower arrangements are gorgeous. The boat ride is a must through the old rice fields and the guides will tell you the history of the plantation.

My 1st visit to the Myrtle Beach area. Friends brought me to the Gardens to take the tour at the zoo! Absolutely wonderful! Our guide, Inge, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, pleasant and interesting. Twin lambs were just born on Sunday! They are so adorable. Will definitely be back to see more.

Well, History, details, exhibitions from the beginning to the end was MAGNIFICENT! Perhaps could be only described in novels...However, disappointment begin with us when we stop the "Old Kitchen" cafeteria for a short break and enjoy the garden while we have our coffee break. From this luxurious, exquisite garden seen, I expected the "Old Kitchen" Cafe would be somewhat higher... More

The largest sculpture park in the United States, and it was well worth the time. Sculptures of all kinds, with beautiful landscaping that made it a pleasure. The docent volunteer was extremely well-informed and did a wonderful job explaining everything. Allow a few hours to really enjoy everything!

I have been to this garden twice now during 2 separate visits to SC. Each time the place is magical and it cannot be seen in 1 day! The new exhibit they have with bronze and marble statues is fantastic. Even though it was not blooming season, the garden sculptures and museum can be appreciated. I recommend it for anyone... More

No matter what time of year, Brookgreen Gardens is a winner! Although I must say spring is my favorite time to visit because of all the blooms! And because the grounds are enormous they give you a 7-day pass. There is no way you could cover it all in one day! I love this place!!

Maybe you've heard of Brookgreen Gardens. Maybe someone you know has been there and raved about it, or maybe you saw it on television or online. Maybe you're wondering if you should go. Simple answer: yes, you should. I've been going to Brookgreen Gardens since I was a kid in elementary school, and it gets better every time I go.... More

Beautiful property. Meet outside of the welcome center for the free walking tour when you get there. The knowledgeable guides tell you about the history and facility. It gives you a good idea what to do after the hour short walking tour is over. A few different places to get a snack or meal at Brookgreen. They also have adult... More

The sculptures are interesting and beautiful. In mid-February there was not much in bloom. Would prefer to pay a bit less for admission on a daily basis rather than have a ticket good for a week.
