Must see · Garden · Art Museum
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.

  • Honestly I cringed paying the $20 per person admission, but once you experience the expansive gardens and exhibits you realize this is an investment into preserving the arts. Plan at least 3 hours...  more »
  • We came here while on vacation, specifically for the Sculpture Garden and Botanic Gardens and were not disappointed. We spent a half a day here and started with the zoo. It's small but so peaceful...  more »
  • Simply beautiful. Interesting history, wonderful and informative boat ride tour. Our family reunion group was welcomed and treated royally. It's easy to get around. Take your time to enjoy the gardens and the center there. We also enjoyed a delicious box lunch there set up for our family. We had our choice of Turkey ham or veggie wraps, chips and bottled water. Dessert was a large delicious cookie.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Must see gardens & sculpture. All of the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Tickets are good all week, so I suggest splitting it into 2 mornings during Summer. During Fall it's easier to do it in 1 day. Found a gorgeous pair of egrets in the gift shop for my garden.
