Conner Prairie's mission is to inspire curiosity and foster learning about Indiana's past by providing engaging, individualized and unique experiences.
At Conner Prairie, the Smithsonian Museum Institution's only Indiana affiliate, you'll find that "Look, don't touch" becomes "look, touch, smell, taste and hear." As you explore five themed historic areas on 200 beautiful, wooded acres, you'll discover more exciting, memorable ways to experience the past than your family or group can pack into a day.
Recognized by the American Association of Museums as a national leader in quality learning, Conner Prairie offers classic, everyday fun in addition to special events, classes and other activities. Whether you're five or 75, discover a new historic adventure each time you visit Conner Prairie.
During the days from April through October, you'll take in the hustle and bustle of pioneer Indiana, jump in and help with chores in a Victorian farm community or hold newly hatched chicks at the Conner Homestead. Throw tomahawks in an Indian trading post and feel the thrill of soaring 350 feet above Conner Prairie's landscape in our newest historic area, 1859 Balloon Voyage.
