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.

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.

Tigers/Preservation Station is an incredible experience. They really don't advertise much. I found out through word of mouth. It's pricy. $125 for two people but well worth it for an up close, face to face encounter with these beautiful animals. $30 upgrade gets you all...More

We visited T.I.G.E.R.S. about 7 years ago and couldn't wait to go back. There's nothing like seeing the Liger in person. Our favorite part of the day was playing with the tiger cubs, the baby wart hogs, and the wolf pups. This is an animal...More
