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.
