Southwest: Georgia O'Keefe & Meow Wolf

For our third and final day in Santa Fe, we visited two very different museums. First, we went to the Georgia O'Keefe museum, which was a short walk from our hotel. Along the way, we strolled along San Francisco St.

The museum was on the small side, providing a nice dose of culture for the boys (and the parents!). There is an activity book for kids.

Our second museum was very different. In fact, I'm not sure if it really was a museum. It is a permanent art installation called Meow Wolf. Here is some art from the parking lot.

Once you enter, you start off outside a house, where a family once lived but has mysteriously disappeared. You can explore anywhere you'd like, touch whatever you want, all in the hopes of unraveling the mystery. Or you can just race around like crazy and enjoy the art.

There are rooms to explore in the house, but also portals leading... elsewhere.

The pictures really don't convey the full wonder of the experience. We spent about three hours there, including a quick agua fresca break. The boys loved it.

Visually, this was one of my favorite rooms.

A lot of the art involved music. The ribs of this mastodon worked like an electronic xylophone.

George R.R. Martin, of Game of Thrones fame, is a patron of Meow Wolf. His books make heavy use of crows. I think that's what this is about.

Finally, here are a couple of pics from the lobby.
