“Very Interesting Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We did the non guided walking tour and it was so interesting to walk around and look at how the Mansion was built and see the great craftsmanship.

“Fun Stop for a Cloudy Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Very well preserved home. It was neat to see all the fixtures and furnishing. The tour guide was very informed and involved in the tour. I went back and forth between average and very good for this attraction. I decided very good because of the value ($10 pp). I would not recommend for young children.

Well preserved famous old home in Galveston. Tours last about 1.5 hours and are very well done. The price is very reasonable.

“Beautiful Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The details in the home are beautiful. The tour was very good and learned lots of historical facts about the family and the city of Galveston. There are even old cars in the garage. It is remarkable that the house survived two hurricanes and still looks amazing. Well worth the cost of admission.

“Lovely home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The Moodys did very well for themselves and had a lovely home. It's now open for others to see and enjoy. Beautiful and fine detail in this architectural beauty. A few vintage cars are in the garage, where the tour begins. Well worth the time.
