Bring your own Picnic Lunch

Bring a sack lunch and eat at the Designated Picnic Area near the Welcome Center entrance. This is a public space and is open to all groups and visitors during normal operating hours. Please remember to leave lunches on the bus or in a vehicle as there is no indoor storage available. You may easily re-enter the museum from this area.

These options include room/shelter rentals and options for picnics, buffets, and seated meals.  For more information contact groups@connerprairie.org or call 317-776-6000 extension 268.
