Nice farmers' market on Saturdays. Nice looking produce but a bit pricey snd no free samples. 2 nice trails to walk on. 1 is paved and you csn look down on the White River. The other trail is through a park-like area with a pond to see and benches to sit on. Nice landscaping.

We've been here for several different activities. It's a diamond in the rough. The orchard shop has THE BEST cider and mulling spices.

My grandson was married on September 5 2015 and the wedding was in the Rose Garden at Minnetrista in Muncie In. It was beautiful. We had the rehearsal dinner and the wedding reception all at the Minnetrista Center Building. The grounds are beautiful.. A beautiful place for a wedding.

A small Farmers' Market is open during the summer on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings and the gift shop operates all year featuring the work of regional artists. The schedule of events and current exhibits... 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.
