Complete with accommodations, a golf course, and science center, Moody Gardens combines recreation with an extensive collection of zoo and aquarium exhibits. Spread out over 98 hectares (242 acres), the park hosts three attractions in the form of giant pyramids: the Aquarium pyramid, the Rainforest pyramid, and the Discovery pyramid, each focused on a different group of animal residents. You can wander amongst the living displays, home to more than 9,000 individual creatures. Don't miss seeing monkeys roaming free through the jungle habitat. For some outdoor fun, take the paddlewheel boat tour, or spend time on the hotel's white sand beach. If you're planning to golf, book a tee time beforehand, as spots can fill up very quickly. Use our Galveston trip maker to add Moody Gardens and other attractions to your Galveston vacation plans.

  • We visited on 3/22. Overall, the Rain Forest experience was the best part of our visit. The unique birds, and foliage. Clean environment to walk through in the Aquarium and the Rain Forest...

  • We had a fantastic time! We took 3 toddlers under the age of 20 months! They were completely enthralled and entertained the whole way through just as much as all 4 of us adults were! It was a learning experience for us! Beautiful! If we get the chance to visit again we definitely will.
  • Had a fantastic 1st time experience. Everyone was very friendly & helpful! The room was beautiful! Slept amazing. Food was great (drinks were even better!) Loved the bartender she's awesome & a master at her craft 😊 Lots to see lots to do, we never had a dull moment
