The cafe is open and located next to the 1859 Balloon Voyage. The hours of operation are the same as our regular operating hours.

Conner Prairie Store

The Conner Prairie Store offers a wide range of unique Conner Prairie-made pottery and textiles, and Indiana-made food and gift items. The store is open and located just inside the main entrance. The hours of operation differ slightly from our regular operating hours in that we stay open 30 minutes later at the end of the day to accomodate our last minute shoppers. Admission is NOT required to shop. All items on this page can be shipped.

Period clothing for children top our best-selling items list, with old-fashioned candy, jewelry, toys, games, books and Civil War clothing not too far behind.
