A Museum Kind of Mood

In 1900 the home was purchased from its original owner by W.L. Moody Jr., wealthy financier and merchant who would become one of the ten richest men in America by the 1950s. The house was occupied by the Moody family for over eight decades. Today, visitors can explore its 28,000-square feet filled with antiques, art, furniture, and other personal items that once belonged to this sophisticated and eccentric family. Self-guided audio tours are available, but much of the house is only accessible to those who choose to take the guided tour. Visitors with kids in tow will also want to check out the Galveston Children’s Museum on the ground floor of the mansion. And car aficionados will want to pop into the garage, which is currently hosting Auto Fever, an exhibit on the history of the automobile in the United States.
