This high-tech, immersive art experience is bankrolled by none other than George R.R. Martin, which really tells you something about the imaginative wonder that lies within. Two years after Martin bought the former Silva Lanes Bowling Alley in 2014, Meow Wolf’s artist collective opened the space’s landmark permanent exhibition: a two-story, 20,000-square-foot Victorian house built to scale, replete with secret passageways, a cave system, and a narrative involving portals to other worlds and a break in the space-time continuum. Equal parts jungle gym, haunted house, and art installation, the exhibit is great for kids (and curious adults, too). The complex also doubles as a performance space, an education center for children, and a makerspace.
