Moody Gardens, consisting of Aquarium, Rainforest and Discovery pyramids, is an educational attraction focusing on nature.
Rainforest Pyramid: Moody Garden's $25 million Rainforest Pyramid enhancement project opened in May 2011. This expansive recreation of Rainforests of the World provides guests with a unique two-level experience on the ground level and in the canopy of the trees.
More than 2,000 exotic plants and animals now call the 10-story Rainforest Pyramid home, including free-roaming saki monkeys, sloths, birds and cotton-top tamarins. Other exhibits include: fruit bats, giant river otters, endangered Chinese alligators and other species
Along the all-new canopy trail, guests get a bird's eye view of the rainforest, where they can spot rare birds, two-toed sloths and other species that live in the forest canopy.
Moody Gardens invites guests to dive into four oceans of the world. Explore the complex beauty and seemingly endless species of marine life in the North Pacific, South Pacific, South Atlantic and Caribbean at the Aquarium at Moody Gardens. Large touch tanks and jewel tanks feature the vivid beauty of the ocean world and provide underwater classrooms and learning opportunities for people of all ages. The blue glass pyramid reaches more than 12-stories high. Built on two viewing levels, guests will stroll up and down walkways to experience the exhibits from above and below the water's surface.
The Discovery Pyramid hosts traveling exhibits from around the world.
