Restored to its turn of the century splendor, the 28,000 square-foot, four-story structure was completed in 1895. Today, our guests visit 20 rooms on a tour that depicts the home life of a powerful Texas family. The Moodys established one of the great American financial empires. Based on cotton, it grew to include banking, ranching, insurance and hotels. The mansion is one of the finest places to visit, a trip back in time. Touring the museum should definitely be on the top on the list for things to do on Historic Galveston Island.

Moody Mansion Museum

The Victorian Experience and understanding of Galveston is not complete until you have toured the Silk Stocking district and specifically the Museum.

I enjoyed roaming through this grandiose estate and imagining the family that lived here. I had driven by this beautiful mansion many times on our trips to Galveston but never had the time to stop. Now I am glad we made the time.

The Moody's were all about preserving their history in which they played a huge part. Opulent house that left enough history for all of us to enjoy. Well informed tour guide that made the history come alive. The Moody's influence still exist today.

Wonderful house, exquisite furnishing, top class upkeep and maintenance. Beautiful. Score 10 out of 10. But, but, the quality of the guided tour: tedious, concentrates on a bucketful of mundane trivia that nobody would care to remember. Below any museum standard and just unacceptable. Score 0 out of 10 would be generous. So if you are deaf and have a... More

I have wanted to see this house since I was a student here in the late 80's. I am so happy to see it open now. It was just as spectacular as I imagined!

The home is spectacular and beautifully restored to its original grandeur. I enjoyed hearing the history of this family and the generations that lived in this home.

Even though they won't let you take any picture of the inside of he mansion. Lots of stair climbing and walking, but it did have A/C and the guides were very knowledgeable.

Went with wife and young kids. Thought we could walk through ourselves (should have checked Trip Advisor first) but it's a guided tour that only starts at certain times. No strollers allowed! I found the history interesting and the house is very impressive. Wife thought the house was nice and the tour process well done but was not into all... More

My wife always wanted to visit the historic mansions in Galveston. The Visitors Center suggest that we purchase the combo Moody/Bishop's Palace tours and we thought that was a good idea. Moody Mansion starts with a video in the garage - make sure you grab a chair as it takes a while, but appropriately sets the stage for the tour.... More
