Overview
More
T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station is quite possibly the country's only FREE living tiger museum. Located inside Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC, it offers families the opportunity to see tigers up close, through glass, absolutely free of charge. For those interested in meeting a tiger or an ape in person, we offer (for a fee)the opportunity to pose with one of the animal ambassadors for a photo. The animals spend only a couple hours per day, in the late afternoon, at T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station and funding generated from our photos and gift shop sales help support various wildlife conservation projects we conduct worldwide through our Rare Species Fund. We are open from mid-March to mid-October and hours of operation can be found by calling our listed telephone number.

This is a great attraction for families or couples. The photo ops are great. All of the proceeds go towards animal conservation. Unfortunately the hours are extremely limited.

Getting to hold baby tigers and monkeys was an amazing experience, especially for only $180 for a family of 3. This also included a photo to commemorate the experience. However, it is a very rushed experience. In addition to not getting to spend a lot...More

This is an amazing experience. The hands on with the baby animals from tigers to warthogs was by far the highlight. The staff there is so dedicated to the wellbeing of their animals and to educating everyone who attends. It was definitely money well spent....More

It’s obviously very expensive, so if you are not willing to pay the price, don’t! But if you want to have a memorable experience, go for it! We got great pictures of our kids with a baby lion, tiger, monkey and feeding a big tiger....More

My kids loved the opportunity to hug a real monkey, hold a baby tiger and bottle feed one. It was adorable. It was also expensive but raises money for a good cause.

That seems a little higher than what we paid. For our family of 3, with all of the digital pictures (over 100 pictures) it was less than $200. If you just want your choice of one picture I remember that it was significantly... More
