Moody Mansion is a 28,000-square-foot estate, which was home to the Moody family, one of the Lone Star State's most eminent entrepreneurs. Visitors can tour 20 rooms across the four-floor home, which are filled with the furniture and curios collected by the family over their 86 years of living there.
Recent visitors said they learned a lot about one of Texas' most influential families, as well as the architecture of the time, through the audio tours of the mansion. However, others wished that the whole home was on view, not just the first and second floors.
Moody Mansion is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, though the ticket office closes at 4 p.m. Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for students 6 and older; kids 5 and younger enter for free. The cost for a "Behind the Scenes" tour of the mansion is $30, and it starts at 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You can't miss the large estate, which rises elegantly on Broadway Avenue.
