Moody Gardens

Moody Gardens was conceived in the 1980s to augment Galveston’s tourism sector with facilities that would attract visitors year-round, extending the economic impacts of local tourism beyond the summer months. The attractions now generate annual revenues in excess of $36 million, and indirect revenues to Galveston businesses totaling several times that amount. The complex now includes a one-acre rainforest environment, the Discovery Pyramid of science exhibitions, a 3-D IMAX theater, and one of the country’s largest aquariums. The Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center, built by the Moody Foundation and owned by the City of Galveston, bring many visitors to the island. Moody Gardens’ environmental education programs are used by teachers at all grade levels.
