The Minnetrista Museum has some good exhibits --- but we prefer just touring the gardens at Minnetrista and adjacent Oakhurst. The museum could be toured any time of year --- the gardens - generally - only in nice weather.

Minnetrrista is a great place to take a scenic walk in Muncie. We especially like looking for frogs and turtles in the ponds, that are wonderfully hidden to the north of the main building. This is a nice escape within the realm of Muncie!
