Just 20 minutes north of downtown Indianapolis
Join us for a couple of hours or a full day of exploration and fun. Over 2,000 FFA members visit Conner Prairie each year for a day filled with interactive, experiential learning. Spend time in the Animal Encounters Barn learning about our heritage breeds and agriculture programs. Take a one mile nature walk through the woods to the overlook and maybe even spot the Bald Eagles who reside here. Stroll back 200 years to experience farming in the early days of Hamilton County or join the Civil War excitement as the town of Dupont, Indiana prepares to defend itself against General John Hunt Morgan and his Raiders. You may also add on an 1859 Balloon Voyage and soar 350 feet up in the air, or take a turn in our Headless Horseman Corn Maze.
Conner Prairie provides FFA members with an up-close look at a wide variety of agricultural careers and the professionals who work them. Patterned after FFA’s eight agricultural career pathways: agribusiness systems; animal systems; biotechnology systems; environmental service systems; food products and processing systems; natural resource systems; plant systems; and power, structural and technical systems, Conner Prairie helps students explore, select and prepare for a career in agriculture matched to their respective interests and talents.
Conner Prairie strives to provide a fun and educational experience for guests of all abilities. Most, but not all, of the historic buildings are accessible by wheelchair. The Accessibility Map is available during your visit. Wheelchairs are available at the Ticket Desk at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis, and limited tram transportation is available. Please notify us before you come if your group has anyone with special needs.
