“Magnificent Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

When I asked for the Broadway Beauty package, which includes the Bishop's Palace and the Moody Mansion, I received a significant discount. Both mansions are worth the time it takes to tour them. The tour guide at the Moody Mansion was informative, humorous, and did not rush us through. She encouraged the tourists to walk around the mansion afterwards and see the stained glass window from the outside. WOW! I'm so glad she suggested that. The stained glass window had a different look from the outside of the home than it did on the inside of the home and both sides were beautiful. The tour guide explained what was done in the restoration after the hurricane of the 1900's and the most recent, Hurricane Ike. This place and the history behind it was truely spectacular.

“Beautiful mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Tours on the hour, $10, a bit pricey for what you get to see, but it is a beautiful old mansion. They did a great job restoring what was damaged in the hurricane

“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.

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
