At Moody Gardens, three glass pyramids pierce the sunny Texas sky. Within these three mock monuments, visitors don't find run-of-the-mill mummies; instead, they enter worlds of interactive animal and science displays that are as educational as they are engaging. 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 canlock 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.

Inside the 1,667-square-foot, multilevel house-turned-yoga-studio, certified instructors bring their own practices and interpretations of several yoga styles to classes for students of all skill sets. During by-demand introductory courses, teachers help students design customized practices that cater to their bodies' needs. Other group classes focus on particular disciplines, such as kundalini yoga, a combination of low-impact aerobic activity and breathing exercises that burn calories and detoxify bodies; and flow yoga, which incorporates positions that increase flexibility and tone muscles. Instructors also guide students through poses during private sessions and workshops, which include occasional retreats and a forthcoming trip to India.
Along with yoga, the healing and learning center's personnel keep visitors healthy with services such as reiki, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and astrology.
