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!

I was expecting more pieces in the museum. We decided not to pay the $5 for admission since the Maze exhibit was geared more towards little kids. I would like to come back when they have the winter festival.
