The Aquarium Pyramid gives visitors up-close-and-personal peeks at more than 10,000 marine animals from the Caribbean, North Pacific, South Pacific, and South Atlantic. Around 1.5 million gallons of water fill the aquarium's four exhibits, where guests can identify five species of penguins, gape at sweeping coral reefs, and exchange salutations with Squirt, the blind sea lion. At The Caribbean, the aquarium’s largest exhibit, visitors can lock eyes with sharks and sea turtles and walk through an underwater tunnel occupied by thousands of kaleidoscopic tropical fish. Another biome soars 10 stories high in the Rainforest Pyramid, filled with more than 1,000 species of exotic plants and animals from three continents. In the Discovery Museum, Jam Remastered explores today’s tech-assisted music world through activities that blend science and math principles with activities including far-reaching whisper pipes, a spooky theremin, and a karaoke stage.
Perched on picturesque Galveston Island, Moody Gardens possesses a storied history that complements its scenic surroundings. Its horticultural and animal-therapy programs—which began in the mid-1980s—pair visitors living with physical and emotional disabilities with horses and multihued flora, helping them learn coping skills and build confidence. Next to the sprawling grounds, the Moody Gardens Golf Course boasts multiple holes that run alongside the rippling waters of the Gulf and its intervening waterways, forming intimidating hazards and housing a thriving civilization of merpeople who use golf balls for currency. The tourist destination also thrills families with water attractions, including a wave pool and a lazy river. The restored 10-story Rainforest Pyramid holds more than 1,700 exotic plants and animals from Asian, African, and American rainforests, while the Aquarium Pyramid features a diverse range of ocean inhabitants including sharks and penguins.
