The Meow Wolf Story
The story of Meow Wolf Santa Fe begins in the creative imaginations of a group of artistic storytellers. The art complex is a truly unprecedented experience that will take you on a journey and inspire you in ways you could not even imagine. The DIY art group evolved with the help of a renowned celebrity who believe in its vision. George R.R. Martin purchased a vacant former bowling alley and allotted it to the art complex for various uses. Meow Wolf stands as a beacon of innovation, welcoming locals and tourists alike to take part in fun, enriching art experiences and workshops.

Meow Wolf House of Eternal Return
The shining star of Meow Wolf Santa Fe is the House of Eternal Return exhibit, which has been documented by the New York Times. This 20,000-square-foot interactive art experience is a house of fantasy and mystery. It feels at first as though you are walking into a typical home, but then it becomes something far more than that! The meticulously crafted wonderland features a variety of installations for you to encounter. A two-story Victorian house built from scratch is the entrance. Within, you will discover the home and life of a fictional family. Enter a break in the space-time continuum, and the interdimensional chaos ensues.
