Moody Gardens Backstage Tour

It's time for our annual Moody Gardens Backstage Tour! Supporting members can join us on a true backstage tour not available to the general public of the newly renovated Moody Gardens Aquarium. See their new marine and coral exhibits and learn how these exhibits (up to a 1,000,000 gallons) are operated. If the timing is right, see the feeding of various exhibits from the other side, the one the public doesn’t see. Learn more about the many research projects and partnerships Moody Gardens is participating in from sharks and inverts to coral reefs and visit their massive hospital and QT facility.

Safety Note - You may be venturing onto wet catwalks and slippery walkways. Proper shoes are strongly recommended, non-tread or unsecured shoes (sandals, flip flops) are not encouraged.

Parental Note - Disruptive children and guests may be bumped into the shark tank and used as food, so everyone’s best behavior is a must around sensitive areas like walking above the shark tank.

When: Saturday, July 30th 2022 and Sunday, July 31st, 2022.

Time: Be there at 1:30pm. The tour starts promptly at 2pm and afterwards if you would like to tour the front of the aquarium exhibit, discounted tickets are available from MARSH at registration for $15 (normally $39.00). Additional exhibits are subject to availability and Moody Gardens pricing.

Where: Moody Gardens Aquarium in Galveston, TX (map)

I'm pumped for this event! If you have never been, it's really cool to see behind the scenes and how they operate. Obviously, they do some things differently than us, but it's fun to see what's the same. You have a protein skimmer? So do they, but there's is 15 feet tall! Got a return pump? Same for them, but they have rows and rows of pumps the size of 454 big blocks!

Is this a one time thing? Or is there a chance they'll offer more tours?
Super bummed that I won't be here that weekend!
