Meow Wolf

Have you heard of Meow Wolf's "The House of Eternal Return?" The NY Times described it as "an interactive, multimedia art experience." Funded by George R. R. Martin (author of "Game of Thrones") to the tune of 2.5 million dollars, it is located in a converted bowling alley and features a Victorian House as well as worlds from other planets.
Inside the entrance, you are told about a fictional family, the Seligs, who have mysteriously disappeared. You are encouraged to open doors, read letters on the desk, and open drawers to try and discover where the Seligs went and what exactly happened to them. Or you can just wander around and see all the weird and wacky things in this 20,000 square foot building.
The house is rather spooky looking as you approach it.
The fireplace mantel leads to another dimension...
 ...and what in the world happened to the chandelier in the dining room?
Or the wainscoting ?
You can open the refrigerator and step into another world...
...and everywhere you turn is a new world to explore.
Climb into a tree house...
 ...check out the bathroom above the dining room...
...and this upstairs kitchen is seriously odd.
 This entire room has anime drawings on every surface.
There are city streets unlike any you've ever seen. The sign says "Sorry we're high."

Bob and I never figured out where the Seligs went, but we sure had fun wandering around this bizarre yet amazing place. If you are ever in Santa Fe, you must make a point to see it.
