Join the history makers through learning and new experiences!

Ready to get out of the house? You can do so safely at Conner Prairie with our BRAND NEW outdoor programming this spring. Important safety standards have inspired us to find new ways to use our expansive grounds for learning, movement, and interaction. Each month will feature a signature theme, and activities will fall into three categories: Outdoor Excursions, Behind the Scenes Tours, and Pure Fun.

Spending a lot of time at home means always looking for interesting things to do and ways to keep minds – young and older alike – engaged. Take advantage of our freshly-launched interactive programming: Conner Prairie at Home, and Conner Prairie in the Classroom. Both programs are suitable for creating a learning environment at home.

Safety, Our Top Priority

This year, safety matters more than ever, and Conner Prairie has taken significant steps to make it safe for families to participate in their favorite activities. Our expansive grounds, large support staff, and long tradition of offering outdoor programming uniquely qualifies us to create a safe environment to carry on our most beloved traditions. We will be abiding by all CDC recommendations, including the mandatory wearing of masks by staff and guests, ages 5 and older, in ALL areas (you may remove your mask while drinking and eating). Check here for a full list of our safety precautions.

Masks are mandatory inside of buildings, bathrooms, admission check-in, and where social distancing isn’t possible.


Open Saturdays and Sundays, March 6 - 28, 10 AM - 4 PM, Pre-Purchased Tickets Required

Springtime at Conner Prairie

With spring just around the corner, we'll embrace what makes the changing seasons so special, with ALL of our senses.

Guests may explore our grounds at their leisure, including Treetop Outpost.


Outdoor Excursions:
Birds, Trees, Plants and Wildflowers, Wake Up, Conner Prairie!

Behind the Scenes Tours:
The Historic Architecture Tour: Conner Prairie has so many buildings and each one has a story to tell.  Walk around the grounds and get to know how some of the buildings came to Conner Prairie and what their use was before.  We can even take a peak into areas the public usually doesn’t see!

Pure Fun:
