Located in a 100-year-old warehouse, The Rabbit hOle will never be “finished,” as the museum plans to continually add exhibits and expand to additional floors in the 15,000-square-foot building. The museum’s in-house creative team of more than two dozen artists designed and built all of the exhibits. National design studio Multistudio partnered with the museum, helping transform the warehouse space into an immersive wonderland.

“The Rabbit hOle is a singular destination that’ll be spoken of as near-legend on local playgrounds and shared between the young-at-heart as a you’ve-gotta-go-there experience—a recommendation passed between friends like a gift,” said Jay Holley, vice president, Multistudio. “It’s been immensely rewarding to help the artists inside the hOle realize this museum of children’s literature in North Kansas City that’s sure to surprise, delight, and educate visitors of all ages.”

In addition to the evolving exhibits, The Rabbit hOle also features a bookstore, print shop, story lab, maker space, library and discovery gallery. The space will host art- and literature-based programming, workshops, author and illustrator events, and field trips.
