Located in Fishers, Ind., Conner Prairie is a nationally acclaimed history destination. The outdoor museum’s mission is to inspire curiosity and foster learning about Indiana by providing engaging, individualized and unique experiences. Recently named a Site of Conscience, it is lauded for connecting past struggles to today's human rights movements.

Created by Eli Lilly in 1934, Conner Prairie combines history with science and encourages visitors to explore Indiana's natural and cultural heritage through hands-on, immersive and interactive experiences. The museum offers several historically themed, indoor and outdoor experience areas throughout its 800 acres of wooded property, including:

  • Makesmith Workshop - This new permanent exhibit explores the fundamentals of creating through hands-on activities using textiles, wood, metal, pottery, and more.
  • Animal Encounters - Step inside the barn of a real working farm where you can feed, pet, and play with livestock while learning from their caretakers.
  • 1836 Prairietown - Step back in time and join a bustling community where people, animals, objects and daily routines are exactly the same as they were many years ago.
  • William Conner House - Enter one of Indiana’s first brick homes where you will discover the story of William Conner and how Indiana’s history changed at Conner Prairie.
  • Lenape Indian Camp - Live like a Lenape Indian as you toss a tomahawk, climb inside a wigwam and try your hand at fur trading.
  • 1859 Balloon Voyage - Soar high above Conner Prairie in a helium-filled, tethered balloon and learn how manned flight moved from dream to reality.
  • 1863 Civil War Journey - Immerse yourself in Hoosier life during the Civil War and enlist to help defend the state from Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan and his raiders.
  • Treetop Outpost - A four-story treehouse will be the centerpiece of this new experience, inviting visitors to climb to the top and take in the view. Connect with nature as you walk along the White River and through scenic woods and prairie terrain.
  • Discovery Station and Craft Corner - Create, climb, explore, play and pretend in a one-of-a-kind play area perfect for children up to age 8 that’s open year-round.
  • Conner Prairie Store - The Conner Prairie Store located inside the Welcome Center offers unique gifts, old-fashioned candy, toys, games, jewelry and more.
