Mostly giving the 5 Stars for the Minnetrista Nature Area at the north end of the property. Great little bit of nature right in the heart of town. Great escape. I have loved walking/sitting here---lots of beautiful memories.

This is an excellent place to visit. There are commonly cool exhibits set up for kids. The paths are nicely landscaped and my children love the free little play garden. At Christmas they often have a nice light walk.

Nice museum with outside garden area. We enjoyed the displays. Not too much hands on activities for the kids, but enough to keep them interested between the other displays.
