You may have already heard about Meow Wolf. If you are coming to this blog post to get a good description, well, you came to the wrong place. There simply aren’t words to properly explain the Meow Wolf experience. In fact, the photos shared below are only a tiny percentage of the hundreds I took while we explored this massive, immersive art installation, and even they cannot properly prepare you. It’s strange. It’s weird. It’s incredible. You have to go.
Notes about accessibility. Meow Wolf was very open about the fact that part of the exhibit would be inaccessible to a wheelchair user. There are parts upstairs that I was only able to explore by being carried up, which obviously doesn’t work for everyone. That said, they did offer a disability discount for our party, which we really appreciated since we didn’t know what to expect before going. There were times when the natural “path” of exploration required crawling or sliding through openings, however, there was always an alternate route. Even with the limitations, there was SO MUCH to see and explore.
Room after room of wild, surreal, and crazy art to overwhelm your senses. Sound, lights, music, touch, color, and smells… yes even smells… will delight you at every turn. The photo-ops are never-ending, and if your group is more clever than my family, there is even a mystery you can solve as you explore. Top Tip: bring your smart friends. We tried, really we did, and we think we might kinda, sorta, maybe?? know what was happening. The great news is, even if you can’t solve the mystery, you’ll still have fun at Meow Wolf. Just go with an open mind and be ready to take it all in.
Even larger adult chairs would be able to explore a good portion of the exhibit. However, the lights and sounds may be really overwhelming for anyone with a sensory concern. The next month when I was wearing my Meow Wolf t-shirt in Mexico, yes Mexico, people would recognize the artwork and it served as a great ice breaker.
