Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet

Brookgreen Gardens plays home to a sculpture park with 1,400 pieces of art, trails, nature reserves, and a zoo. Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington bought the property, which was originally four plantations, to showcase her figurative sculptures in an outdoor environment. Wander through lush, moss-draped coastal vegetation, along riverbanks, and across rich marshland at this National Historic Landmark that opened to the public in 1932. Watch for local wildlife and numerous archaeological sites, or visit the on-site Lowcountry Zoo and its dedicated center for rehabilitating injured animals.

  • The Gardens looks breathtakingly beautiful during the Holidays. The lights and candles make the place glow. It was such a romantic and lovely experience. I can't believe I had never gone before. Completely and extremely worth the price. It is something everyone should experience at least once in their life.
  • This place is amazingly beautiful. We rode our bikes in from the Murrells Inlet bike path. You have to leave your bikes near the parking lot and walk through the gardens and zoo so bring your walking shoes. But you can ride bikes on the road from the gardens to the zoo- anywhere a car can go. Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and an amusing story teller!! The sculpture throughout the park is stunning. Great experience! Highly recommend!
  • If you like nature walking and enjoy sculptures then this is the place for you. Staff is very friendly and they encourage kids to participate by giving them a paper for a scavenger hunt. My 3 year old was excited to do it and he got a pencil and ruler when he turned it in.
  • One of the best places to visit you learn about the history and the art and sculptures. It really is a beautiful place. The tickets are good for 6 consecutive days. You can not see it all in one day. The staff there are great.
  • Entry price seemed a little high but found out ticket was good for entire week. Beautiful, well kept, free tours. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. Had a great time but just too much to see in one day. We wanted to return, but had to return to Ohio the next day.
