Moody Gardens

Average Reviews



A garden dedicated to tropical and subtropical plants centered on the 10-story “Pyramid of the tropical rainforest”. The management committee commissioned Sir Geoffrey Jellico to design the garden. This is the culmination of Sir Jericho’s career as a designer, but it has not yet been realized.

Whether for work or play, this tropical land is ideal for families and groups. See penguins, sharks and thousands of tropical fish in the aquarium pyramid and experience the depths of the ocean. The Rainforest Pyramid offers a variety of exotic tropical plants and animals. Discover the mysteries of science at the Discovery Museum and see powerful images in the IMAX® 3D, 4D and Ride theaters. You can also cruise the Colonel’s paddle wheel or enjoy Palm Beach’s beautiful white sand and blue lagoon. Whether you are traveling for a weekend or a long stay, Moody Garden Hotel, Spa and Conference Center can provide accommodations and services for your ideal trip.


Moody Gardens originated in the mid-1980s when there were only horses and stables. The aim is to initiate a cycling hypoxia therapy program for people with head injuries. Today, Moody’s Garden® has become one of the best educational and recreational facilities in the southwestern United States. We also provide gardening care, education and employment for people with various disabilities.


Moody Gardens was founded in 1983 and adopted an eight-step master plan in 1985. It provides many innovative solutions across a variety of attractions, attracts approximately 2 million annually and is used by many customers.
