A nonprofit outdoor museum, native wildlife zoo, and site of former rice plantations, Brookgreen Gardens is one of America’s cultural treasures, where history, art, and nature merge seamlessly. Its unparalleled collection of American figurative sculpture is showcased under live oak trees. Voted one of the Top 10 Public Gardens in the US, Brookgreen offers a selection of educational programs and exhibits for all ages. Stroll through the gardens on a guided tour or walk the Lowcountry Trail, letting your imagination take you back in time. In 2016, Brookgreen will celebrate the 85th anniversary of its founding by philanthropist Archer M. Huntington and his wife, renowned sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington. Designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the Register of National Historic Places, Brookgreen Gardens attracted 300,000 visitors last year, including 37,000 at Nights of a Thousand Candles, a festival of lights and entertainment that is a leading holiday event in the Southeast.
