Celebrating our 85th Anniversary, Brookgreen Gardens' combination of art, history, and zoo touches the heart and teaches the mind. Boat rides turn into history lessons and visits to the butterfly house become learning sessions in conservation. Explore the Visit section for all our daily activities.
