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 wife and I went to Barefoot Landing to visit the Tigers. First, we missed the part that they are only there from 5 to 7. So we returned later. So glad we did. It is pricey to do to the whole package, for sure....More

While at Barefoot Landing check out the beautiful tigers! They are behind the Earthbound store. I love watching them!

Pictures are expensive but you can watch for free. Great cause. Animals are well cared for... Located near the back of Barfoot Landing.

We paid the extra bit of money to hold the 3 different animals. (Monkey, Tiger cub, etc). You get to hold them long enough to get a photo taken. It was cute and worth it for me, I haven't ever held a tiger cub before...and...More
