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.

We pre-booked, which really worked out well. In doing so, we totally avoided any line. The staff were friendly, informative, and really made an effort to ensure that our 3 year old had a positive experience. Some reviews said that it was a quick experience,...More

Did the Safari Tour and Preservation Station, experience was awesome. Learned a lot about their efforts to save and assist exotic animals all over the planet. They are doing an amazing job.
