About Brookgreen Gardens

Registered as a National Historic Landmark, Brookgreen Gardens is a wonder of native flora, fauna, and American sculpture. Considered by many to be the jewel of the Grand Strand, Brookgreen Gardens has been delighting visitors since its creation in 1931 by Anne and Archer Huntington. 

Located off Highway 17 in Murrells Inlet, the entrance is conveniently marked by the larger-than-life sculpture Fighting Stallions by founder Anna Hyatt Huntington. Among the nine-thousand lush acres of South Carolina history and Lowcountry, landscapes you will find the most significant collection of outdoor figurative sculpture by American artists in the world. At Brookgreen Gardens you will learn about the rice plantations of the 1800s and the Gullah culture of the enslaved Africans who worked them.

Guests are able to see animals in scenic enclosures that respect the animals and the surrounding environment at the Lowcountry Zoo and Native Animal Habitat. The little ones will love the Butterfly House and the Peace Garden Room for Children along with the fountains, reflecting pools, and hidden pathways.

There are plenty of open, green spaces to walk or lay back and watch the clouds go by at Brookgreen Gardens. Picnics are allowed in designated areas. Guests can explore all Brookgreen Gardens has to offer on foot, by boat tour or by the Trekker tour vehicle. In addition to the natural and artistic beauty, Brookgreen Garden hosts a variety of holiday and cultural events. Be sure to attend the Harvest Home Weekend in October, Nights of a Thousand Candles in December, and check their website for special summer events. 

New in 2023 is a special exhibit RODIN: CONTEMPLATION AND DREAMS – Selections from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Collections. It will be on display through April 23, 2023, in Brookgreen’s Rosen Galleries and includes 46 works by French sculptor Auguste Rodin.

    One of the happiest days of my life was spent at Brookgreen Gardens. While my friends walked through the gardens, I chose to take the boat tour. I didn't want it to end. Later, we shopped in the gift shop and bought some unusual things. But it was the feeling of being in a very special place that I best recall. It's hard sometimes to explain how places affect one. This one was very very special. I hope to revisit someday.

    In anyone's life there is a time when you must examine yourself in relationship to the world around you. This is one of the most fabulous places on the planet to contemplate nature and your place in it.

  • Dont leave Myrtle Beach without a visit to Brookgreen Gardens

    Excellent place no matter the age. My grandchildren loved the boat ride and tour in a WW2 jeep deep into the woods. Loved the art, animals and swamp tour. So much history I suggest buying a pass to return another day. User
