I visited the Rain Forest at the suggestion of my 7 year old granddaughter. She visited last year with her other grandparents. She was so fascinated by the ocelot that she is preparing a report on for school.

Moody Gardens is a wonderful getaway for those living in the Houston Area. Each one has a different theme but provide a lot of interactive attractions. The hotel was nice and the Shearns Restaurant was fabulous.

We really enjoyed Moody Gardens, and were luck to see a fantastic film at their IMAX theatre. Best to go when there aren't so many crowds.

I do not work there. Their website is generally up to date but they are helpful if you need to call. I do know that they have been renovating the pyramids one at a time but they seldom close an entire pyramid. They... More
