The exhibits will be Meow Wolf’s 4th and 5th permanent locations.
SANTA FE, NM — New Mexico-based arts company Meow Wolf announced plans Wednesday to open two new permanent exhibits.
Meow Wolf said its fourth and fifth immersive and interactive experiences or “portals” will open up Texas.
A permanent facility in Grapevine, Texas, located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, is scheduled to open in 2023.
Another art exhibit is planned for Houston’s Fifth Ward neighborhood, with an expected opening in 2024.
“The Meow Wolf story universe is expanding, and Texas holds the keys to our next chapters,” said Meow Wolf CEO Jose Tolosa. “Opening a permanent exhibit in the largest and one of the most diverse states in the country has been on Meow Wolf’s radar for years, and we’re thrilled to be officially underway. The opportunities this State presented have already become the touchstones of a dynamic, arts-centric portal to imaginative creativity.”
More than one million visitors have visited Meow Wolf’s first installation, “House of Eternal Return”, in Santa Fe since 2008.
Meow Wolf opened its second permanent facility, “Omega Mart”, in Las Vegas in February 2021 and its third, “Convergence Station, in Denver in September 2021.
In 2019, Meow Wolf expanded beyond New Mexico with “Kaleidoscape,” the world’s first artist-run amusement park at Elitch Gardens in Denver.

“We have never designed two exhibits in the same state at the same time. The Texas experiences will be deeply rooted in artist collaboration and connected by hidden Easter eggs,” said Dale Sheehan, executive creative director of Meow Wolf.
“Of course, the places themselves are also creative prompts. At Grapevine, we will look at the energy of a shopping center – a nostalgic place for many of us, where families gather and where young people adults often find their first moments of freedom. In Houston, we will engage a thriving arts community in the nation’s most diverse city, which we believe will spark a groundbreaking wave of artistic expression.”
