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.

Hermoso para ir con tu familia, lo recomiendo. Fui con mis hijos y nietos pequeños y adolescentes y quedaron encantados! more »Beautiful to go with your family, I recommend it. I went with my children and grandchildren and teenagers and they were delighted!
5 STAR ALL THE WAY I had an exception vacation One great place with a AAA 4 diamond dinning and several other great restaurants. Dining was just the icing on the cake. Moody Garden is just an inspiring place with something for everyone. From the aquarium, rain forest. 3D theater to zip lining. swimming in a beautiful pool
This place was good 25 years ago but now it's a WHOLE LOT BETTER! The 4D movie experience was just AMAZING. Special Thanks to Quentin Cleveland for saving the day. He`s the BEST!
