Moody Mansion & Museum
A great place to visit, Moody Mansion & Museum is a classic Victorian mansion that has been restored to its former elegance and is an architectural beauty. Built with red brick, limestone, and terracotta tiles around 1892, it was named after its famous owner and Texas business tycoon, W. L. Moody, Junior who resided there until his death in 1954. It stands as a prime example of ornate, early 20th century architecture and contains over 25,000 square feet of living space. Especially notable are the stained glass windows and the fine carved wood used throughout the house. The park called Moody Gardens is also worth a visit for its dynamic nature. Visitors will also admire the beautiful silver and Victorian furnishings.

May God bless you always!!!
The tour guide was boring, and did not give a lot of detail about its victorian heritage ! I think they could have given us more information. It might have been more fun with a diffrent tour guide,but I am telling you go to see the beauty of the house!
We just finished a tour of the Moody Mansion and found it very interesting. Our tour guide was wonderful and told us many interesting stories about the house and it' owners. If you enjoy old historical homes and history this is one place you don't want to miss going too. The admission price is very fair and the funds are used to operate the mansion and help keep it up. Once again I wouldn't hesitate to go there again when I am in the area.
The Moody Mansion is certainly a 'Must SEE' when touring Galveston.
The home is totally restored to Victorian elegance with period furnishings and wallpaper throughout the home. The woodwork alone is worth touring this home to view.
All the tour guides were well informed and did their jobs excellent.
No photos are allowed inside (per usual in historical homes), however there is a gift shop where you can purchase postcards with photos of the rooms.
At the time we toured the mansion (Sept. 2006) an adult ticket was ONLY $6.00, a bargin for sure!
