The most anticipated opening of the year is here! Meow Wolf Grapevine officially opened to the public on July 14th. We got a chance to check out the new exhibit, “The Real Unreal” which creates immersive, mind-bending, larger-than-life art experiences!

Updated July 2023



Founded in Santa Fe, NM in 2008, Meow Wolf is a mind-bending, immersive art installation like no other. The artists behind it are a collective of creative geniuses that have transformed ordinary buildings into multi-dimensional wonderlands. Step into a portal that transports you into another dimension, surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colors, sounds, and textures. They currently have locations in Vegas, Santa Fe, and Denver. Grapevine is their fourth location, and another in Texas will be coming to Houston in 2024! Each has a different theme that all the art and storyline fit into, with ours being The Real Unreal.

Meow Wolf isn’t just a place to view art, it’s an experience! When you enter, you’ll be immersed in a maximalist, colorful multiverse unlike any other. Each location has a different theme, but each is full of psychedelic art that is truly thought-provoking. The experience is audience-driven, so you can truly choose how you see the art! 



Explore the unknown at The Real Unreal, which tells the story of an ordinary family that encounters the extraordinary, covering topics like chosen family, community, and the power of imagination! Spanning an impressive 29,000 sq ft, the immersive wonderland encompasses 30 distinct rooms that serve as canvases for artists to bring their unique visions to life. Your journey begins in a house that transports you into the Meow Wolf story universe on the other side. The intricate rooms were designed by 38 Texas artists alongside resident Meow Wolf artists, and many will give nostalgia to the original Santa Fe Meow Wolf for those who have been!



If you loved your time at Meow Wolf, there’s a huge gift store packed with cool merch to take home. It took a huge team of wildly creative people to bring Meow Wolf to life, and right by the cafe is an interactive touch screen that tells you about each room and what artists contributed to it! Or if you’re hungry, stop by the super cute cafe for a coffee and sweet treat!



Tickets are already on sale and you’ll want to grab yours fast if you haven’t yet! We just toured it and it’s so well done! You’ll be exploring, crawling, mystery solving, realm hopping, touching, washing machine sliding, arcade game playing, and more. You could honestly spend an entire day getting lost in all of the twists and turns of Meow Wolf!






The exhibit is located at Grapevine Mills Mall, just north of DFW Airport. They’ll be open 7 days a week, from 10 am to 10 pm most days. They’ll also have a cafe featuring 15 local food and beverage vendors! This is a great spot to host parties and special events!
