Omega Mart by Meow Wolf Las Vegas is an immersive, funky, and innovative art adventure, and it’s also one of the anchor experiences at Area 15. Set in what at first appears to be a normal grocery store, you soon realize that things are not always as they seem. The Omega Mart experience is one of the newest by Meow Wolf, and it’s sure to become your favorite exceptional grocery store.
The Meow Wolf Omega Mart Experience
Many have ventured their way through Omega Mart at Area 15 in Las Vegas, but few are able to find the words to describe what they’ve experienced there. Omega Mart is a far cry from the usual art installations you might see around town. It’s an interactive experience that draws you in bit by bit until you’re fully invested in the immersive storytelling and looking for clues to unravel the mysteries that Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart holds.
As you enter the Omega Mart experience that spans more than 50,000 sq ft, everything seems vaguely familiar, maybe with a touch of whimsy. It looks like a typical grocery store with a few artistic surreal touches, but within moments, you’re learning that this is one extraordinary supermarket.
Guests of all ages are invited in through the doors of Omega Mart Las Vegas, and how you experience Meow Wolf’s latest installation is entirely up to you. For those who just want to wander and observe, there are hundreds of funky and interesting artistic creations from both international and local artists. If you have a creative and open mind, it’s honestly enough to wander and explore all the different areas featuring jaw-dropping work.
But, for the inquisitive, Omega Mart offers an entirely different type of experience. Throughout the four main areas and multiple other exhibits, the often surreal art tells a story and holds clues that are for you to figure out, including what’s behind the evil doings of the Dramcorp offices, which is the “corporate headquarters” for Omega Mart. Discovering the backstory is so much part of the adventure that guests are given a Boop card that allows them to unlock computers and secret electronic files to uncover clues.
Whatever way you view this unique experience, there’s lots to do for all ages. Adults and kids alike can play, crawl through secret portals, travel unexpected landscapes, and touch everything in this mind-bending exhibit. After exploring the surreal worlds of Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart Las Vegas, we think you might find your local grocery store a bit boring.
About Meow Wolf
Meow Wolf’s beginnings were humble but purposeful as a small collective of artists from Santa Fe. The artists behind Meow Wolf’s fame are creative geniuses in the realms of graphic design, painting, sculpting, music, and technology. The mission behind Meow Wolf is to “Inspire creativity through art, exploration, and play, so that imagination will transform the world.” Omega Mart by Meow Wolf Las Vegas is a shining example of this.
Today, the Meow Wolf collective has grown to include hundreds of artists in all fields of creative expression. The mind-bending experience of the Omega Mart exhibit is just one example of their incredible work.
Meow Wolf has had many other successful projects, many of which have an element of the familiar to them, inviting you to feel comfortable in your surroundings before you’re led through the many worlds created by the imagination and hands of Meow Wolf’s artists.
A few of Meow Wolf’s projects before their permanent installation of Omega Mart at Area 15 have included The House of Eternal Return where small-town meets science fiction, The Due Return that explored an alien landscape, and the artist-driven voyage of Kaleidoscope.
