After viewing most of what Moody Gardens had to offer I would recommend the Rainforest. Go when it is not too busy so you have some elbow room. It was better than I imagined. Great photos!

We only visited the Aquarium because we didn't have much time after a day at the beach. We spent about 1.5 hours in the place and from 6 - 8 pm we had it to ourselves. In my opinion, it is an average aquarium. We...More

My grandson loved it. Wish there had been more to see in the aquarium but fun none the less. A little pricey but then it was comparable to the sea life aquarium near my home.

Mud wrap! From the moment you walk in, until you leave, you are pampered. Wonderful mud wrap, jucuzzi with over 100 jets, lotion applied after that. Best service they offer. The sitting rooms before and after are very relaxing.

We went to the rainforest and had a nice time. It was hot in there so be prepared for that. The animals were cute and the flowers and tress were pretty.

This is a wonderful all day trip. Be sure to purchase the day pass and visit all the attractions then spend sometime at the water park. FREE parking but bring lunch and have a picnic instead of leaving and coming back.
