Not too long ago I made a day journey to the Aquarium at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas.  February is the sluggish season within the space, which meant that the go to was very nice with no crowds in any respect.  This aquarium is among the largest within the Southwest with over 1.5 million gallons of sea water, and what makes this aquarium distinctive is that it’s housed in one of many three pyramid formed buildings on the advanced.

This was one of many cleanest and most well-kept aquariums I’ve ever visited. It was not the biggest aquarium however had a superb number of specimens to see. The shows have been very spectacular, the specimens appear nicely cared for, the water was crystal clear, and all glass was clear for correct viewing.

The one draw back for me was the restricted open hours, 10 am – 4pm on week days.  If touring over the Galveston Ferry plan for delays. We arrived with only some hours left, so plan accordingly when visiting. We have been capable of get by means of the complete aquarium at an informal tempo inside 2 hours with 1 hour to spare earlier than closing.

In case you are within the neighborhood, plan a visit to Moody Gardens or perhaps a trip within the space; there are various different sights additionally accessible in Galveston.
