In the first museum, mind-blowing and whimsical objects from more than 100 countries in the world are very easy to find: dolls, masks, costume and textiles of all kinds, paintings and religious folks items.  There is also an exposition of vernacular art, in the other wing of this Museum that attracts, every year, visitor flocks from all over the countries.

The Meow Wolf instead, is an Art and Entertainment company founded in 2008 as an Artist Collective that opened its first permanent space to the public in 2016.  There, you will spent your free time among maximalist art installations, focusing on interactivity, narrative and immersive art. The Meow Wolf is something very unusual, hard to find elsewhere.
