Everchanging gem of a garden and culture center

I come here about once per year, and every time it is different. The relatively extensive gardens vary with month and weather, but they are always well maintained. The rose... read more

Not worth the visit. You are charged $5 per person to look at people's junk. The grounds were nice, but I could have looked at that for free.

I come here about once per year, and every time it is different. The relatively extensive gardens vary with month and weather, but they are always well maintained. The rose gardens are always a highlight. Inside there are four major galleries, one on the first floor dedicated towards Muncie and the Ball Corporation, and three upstairs. There is also a... More

Minnetrista adds culture to Muncie through concerts, festivals, the farmers market, and exhibits, and special events. The fairy and sprites event is the centerpiece of our summer. We really also enjoy the 4th of July fireworks and concert. Have fun coming to Minnetrista.

I visited the small, but great Farmer's Market, here, today. I got a glimpse of some the other features of this historic, cultural, natural, & more, estate. The goods at the market were all local farm family products, a indication of the type of place that this place represents. The cultural, entertainment, historical & business events are many. One need... More

If you've never been-then you must see beautiful Minnetrista in Muncie. The scenic views and art are worth it. The only downer to the trip was that some of the people there are a little rude but it's not enough to put me off of ever going back.

We were searching for the Garfield statues and so we stopped here. There is a display about local lands and their history, as well as a market/gift shop area. The shop has some local items. Statues outside were interesting to look at. Only wish we were there during the spring or summer when the flowers would have been out.

Throughout my years at Ball State, by far my favorite spot to run has been in Minnetrista. It's well-lit at night, the grounds are beautiful, and the trails are ideal for runners. I used the Minnetrista trails to train for a race I ran in Battersea Park in London. Additionally, the farmer's market is also a great way to connect... More
