What They're Saying


I checked into the Moody Gardens due to my apt complex shut down my pool. Well moody gave me the resort experience without leaving the state. Everything was COVID friendly..clean..sanitized..and organized. Anything i needed my front desk agent Kamaria Watson was there to make me feel comfortable and safe.

A Variety of Fun and Educational Things To Do

We enjoyed our visit to Moody Gardens and left feeling like there were still more things to do. The aquarium has some excellent exhibits; we especially enjoyed watching feeding time for the penguins and the seals. The rain forest was amazing, with free-flying birds and free-roaming monkeys, as well as a gorgeous collection of tropical plants. There was a selection of 3D and 4D films; we saw the 3D film about sharks. We also took the paddle boat tour. Being on the boat was enjoyable, although the bayou on which it sails is very developed and not very scenic. I didn't have the chance to visit the "discovery" pyramid, but my daughter did and liked that as well. We ate at the Garden Cafe, with a pleasant view of the water and plentiful good food. We definitely could have spent a lot more time at Moody Gardens if our itinerary had allowed. (Note: the beach and waterpark were closed for the season when we visited, so call ahead for seasonal hours if that's something you'd like to do.)

Trip Advisor

Took visiting family to MG and had a blast! It's very big and we got there in the afternoon, so couldn't see all of it. We saw the Aquarium & Rain Forest pyramids, spent some time in the Lazy River and saw a 3D movie about Coral Reefs. Plus - We hit the food court for a yummy lunch. Not sure who had more fun, us or the kid! :-) Will be back soon to see the rest.
