Meow Wolf is an interactive experience unlike any other art museum you’ve visited, and the three locations each have their own unique theme and storyline. Here’s an itinerary for visiting all three Meow Wolf destinations and other stops along the wayLess
The newest and biggest Meow Wolf exhibit, located in Denver, sprawls throughout a 90,000-square-foot building and features more than 70 immersive displays. Convergence Station’s theme is multiversal travel between four alien worlds, inspired by the building’s actual location near two major freeway overpasses.
In the spirit of exploration, check out what Boulder, Colorado, looks like from the top of a mountain at this favorite hiking spot for locals. There are three options from the Mount Sanitas trailhead, with varying difficulty levels. The 3.1-mile loop trail is rated moderate to difficult (don’t forget to bring water and wear sunscreen), but the panoramic ridgetop view of Boulder is a worthy reward.
Just outside of Taos, New Mexico, the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, also known as the “High Bridge,” straddles a 1,300-foot-wide river gorge. Sidewalks on both sides of the road allow pedestrians to stroll across and peer down at the Rio Grande riverbed roughly 600 feet below. The incredible view of the earth cracked in half feels like something out of a fantasy novel.
New Mexico’s House of Eternal Return is Meow Wolf’s flagship location, made possible by a generous pledge from Santa Fe resident and Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin, who knows a thing or two about magical worldbuilding. The exhibit makes every inch of the 20,0000-square-foot space into something explorable and fantastical. Multiple hidden passageways lead to a fantasy world where you may encounter a giant treehouse, a laser music room, or a secret arcade.
Head deeper into the desert for a glimpse of Meteor Crater Natural Landmark, one of the world’s best-preserved meteorite impact sites. The massive crater is 3,900 feet in diameter, about 560 feet deep, and will have you wondering what it must have been like to witness this incredible cosmic event roughly 50,000 years ago.
What better example of an inverted world exists than the Grand Canyon? This beloved and iconic national park has served as inspiration and subject matter for countless works of art. Take a hike on the Bright Angel Trail to soak in the stunning views below the rim. The view and the climate change with each trail leg deeper into the canyon, making for some real-world multiversal travel.
Go even deeper and take an elevator ride 200 feet below ground level into the Grand Canyon Caverns, the largest dry canyon system in the country. The rocky underground passages were designated as a fallout shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and you can still see the cache of supplies stored in one of the larger chambers.
Omega Mart is the perfect culmination of Meow Wolf and Las Vegas—a psychedelic grocery store out of a fever dream where nearly everything on the shelves is available for purchase. The grocery products are works of art themselves, featuring that unmistakable Meow Wolf brand of whimsy and weird. Multiple passageways lead out of the grocery storefront to the neon multiverse beyond, and the exhibit includes several multi-story slides.
