The MHOF is located at 1851 Front Street in Whiting, Indiana; just 30 minutes from Downtown Chicago. The attraction was created to engage, educate, and entertain fans, school groups and visitors through its innovative, interactive, mascot-themed exhibits.

Guests will experience exhibits such as the "Department of Furry Arts", the "Science of Silliness Lab", and the "Phuzzical Education Department".

More than just a giant fun factory, the MHOF will house interactive, educational displays and activities that will incorporate S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to compliment state and local curriculums. The MHOF will be the perfect destination for school field trips and youth organizations.
