We toured the rain forest pyramid . It was a pretty easy walk and not too busy for a Sunday. Enjoyed the sounds and sights. Some of the animals looked pretty bored and maybe would be more content with another one of their species. I...More

It is a wonderful attration. The Rainforest, Museum and Aquarium pyramids are very well done and well maintained. The habitats for the animals are great, and the staff attentive. Good for a rainy day in Galveston.

We love moody gardens. However it was a disappointment that they've done away with the butterfly enclosure. That was one of our favorite things. The Iceland Rainforest was fantastic! Loved all the ice sculptures resembling rainforest creatures and habitats.

The coupons we found were only $2 off per person. Normal admission is $70 per person but this covers your admission to most of the activities offer. We did not visit the aquarium during our visit.

We have not seen any holiday shows yet this year but the magic show and the festival/trail of lights are must sees every year. Both are at Moody Gardens.
