Traveling as a group, you will encounter a variety of characters, ranging from sympathetic allies to racist antagonists. It is a powerful experience that generates empathy, provokes discussion, and immerses visitors in this important part of our nation’s history.
Conner Prairie’s nationally acclaimed, award-winning Follow the North Star experience, developed from years of extensive research, is unlike any other. This interactive glimpse into our shared past will affect you in ways that reading a book or watching a movie about it cannot.
Follow the North Star is not for everyone. You should be prepared to take on the role of an escaped slave; you'll be walking outside on rough terrain in all kinds of weather, told to keep your eyes focused downward and spoken to in an abrupt manner.
Tours leave every 15 minutes beginning at 6:30 pm. The entire experience lasts approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes. Click "purchase tickets" below and select your preferred start time.
