Minnetrista offers free admission for military personnel


Minnetrista invites our nation’s active duty and retired military personnel to attend our exhibits for free during the month of September! Free admission covers the service member and up to five family members in attendance with them. This promotion includes those serving in or retired from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, U.S. Public Health Commissioned Corps, and NOAA Commissioned Corps.

Patrons must show a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), DD Form 1173 ID card (department ID), or a DD Form 1173-1 ID card to receive free admission.

Tickets are available at the Minnetrista Center Building front desk or by calling 765-282-4848.

Flags of Honor is available for all to experience from September 4–11. Experience a ‘sea’ of red, white, and blue with friends and family as more than a thousand American flags adorn Minnetrista’s lawn beside the White River Greenway. Flags of Honor is in partnership with the Exchange Club of Muncie in honor and memory of local veterans, current service personnel, fallen heroes, and all who wish to display their pride for our country.

Bob Ross Experience will be temporarily closed September 6–21 while Minnetrista works on Phase ll of the exhibit. All other exhibits and programming will continue to be available to visitors during that time. For those eligible for the discount who wish to visit the Experience Minnetrista recommends purchasing tickets in advanced for the end of the month to ensure a time-slot during the time of the promotion.
