Owner description: 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.

“Nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Very nice tour director, didn't rush you and very good at answering all questions. Not as fancy as Bishops Palace but still as a wonderful place to see.

“Beautiful Historical Mansion”

This is a beautiful building and the Docent's are a wealth of information about the city of Galveston. If you like History and enjoy beautiful old architecture, you should visit

“Love hearing about the history here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This was a great tour. The video at the beginning was interesting and the story that you get to hear while on tour tells so much about the history of this town as well as the house. Beautiful mansion!
