Conner Prairie Interactive History park invites families of today to engage, explore and discover what it was like to live and play in Indiana’s past. We bring history to life by recreating settings and time periods and by engaging visitors through first-person costumed interpreters and hands-on experiences.

We have five themed historic areas on 200 beautiful, wooded acres including, 1863 Civil ...War Journey: Raid on Indiana, Lenape Indian Camp, and a 19th-century settlement called 1836 Prairetown. In 1859 Balloon Voyage guests can fly 350 feet above the prairie in a tethered helium balloon. Visitors can explore the 1823 William Conner Homestead – the first brick home in Hamilton County. Guests can also mingle with our rare and historic breeds in our Animal Encounters Barn and trek through our Nature Walk. Indoors, families can get creative and experiment in Create.Connect, Discovery Station and Craft Corner. Every visit is a unique adventure that provides an authentic look into the history that shapes us today.

Our goal is to educate families with fun and interactive experiences that expose them to history, nature, science and the arts.

Mission Statement: To inspire curiosity and foster learning about Indiana's past by providing engaging, individualized and unique experiences.

Fun place to take your kids to show them how people lived in the past. Fun activities for the kids. A lot of new stuff that has been added in the last year. The kids always love to visit the new baby animals in the barn, goats and sheep and a new baby cow. A very large new area with a treehouse and a archeology dig site. And there is the Prairie Town area where you can step back in time with your family and talk to people in character of the 1800s.

Great Time/Activity for Kids of all ages. You could spend all day there if you wanted. Pretty big and lots of things to check out. Indoor kids area to play and make crafts and then Outdoor stuff to do/see and learn about our great history. Kids water/splash area to keep cool, so think about swimming trunks or towel or atleast change of clothes for your young ones just in case. We went on a really hot day, but wasn't actually too bad since there's indoor air condition area/activities and the outdoor splash area and when your walking around, its woodsy and shaded, so it was actually nice and relaxing strolling on the paths. They have some animals to pet(goats and sheep). There's also a Hot Air Balloon ride(always attached to ground). We didn't ride it, but it goes straight up and comes back down and probably has a nice view!👍😁

I chaperoned a field trip here with my son's fourth grade class. I was very impressed. I had never heard of Conner Prairie before, but apparently I am in the minority on that. Talking with friends about the trip, I heard over and over again about how much they enjoyed their field trips there, as kids. There is so much to see that it is hard to experience it all in one day. Definitely worth a visit.

First time going with a 3 and 4 year old.The wagon rentals were a practical and pleasant surprise that immediately got our girls excited. Plenty to do indoors and out, with a wonderful staff that is helpful and interactive. Our girls loved the treetop post, sand box, and creating/launching paper airplanes at one of the craft stations. They all enjoyed a soft serve before the day was over. A lot of fun, we look forward to going back soon.

Great place to experience! Love the civil war area: Must see inside general store and theater-type exhibit. Go on the educator portion of the website to learn before going. Everyone is in character and sticks to their time period and its wonderful!
