The Rabbit hOle

Located in a 100-year-old warehouse in North Kansas City, Missouri, The Rabbit hOle will provide visitors of all ages with radically immersive experiences featuring beloved books including Goodnight Moon, Last Stop on Market Street, Madeline, Strega Nona, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, Frog and Toad Together and many more.

The Rabbit hOle has assembled an in-house team of more than two dozen staff to design and build all of its exhibits. However, the museum will never be “finished” as the Rabbits will continually add exhibits and plan to expand into additional floors of its four-story, 150,000 sq.ft. building. Multistudio has been a proud partner of The Rabbit hOle since 2018, and has been instrumental in helping the Rabbits to transform the site from warehouse to wonderland.

Alongside its exhibits, The Rabbit hOle will also include a full-service bookstore, print shop, story lab, maker space, resource library and discovery gallery. These areas will offer a variety of arts and literature-based programming, professional development workshops for educators, field trips and special events with authors and illustrators from around the country.

We asked for a lot of considerations, back-and-forth, and problem-solving that were outside the norm. Multistudio has been a patient and creative partner in helping us realize an unprecedented architectural space to match our unique vision for the museum’s exhibits and bespoke programming areas.
