Sensory Friendly Information

We are proud to offer families with children and adults with autism, as well as other sensory differences, spaces and tools that they may need so that they can explore Conner Prairie as their true, authentic selves.

Here are our tips to help guide your way through Conner Prairie if you, or someone in your family has sensory differences:

  • If someone likes to interact with animals, our Animal Encounters Barn is perfect.
  • If someone likes to tinker, visit Spark!Lab inside the Welcome Center.
  • If someone likes to get their hands dirty, join interpreters in tasks in Prairietown and Lenape Indian Camp.
  • If someone likes to play with toys, come and play in Discovery Station in the Welcome Center and in River Crossing out in Civil War Journey.
  • If someone likes to create art, visit Anything Can Happen Art in the Welcome Center.
  • Treetop Outpost is a great location for someone who loves being out in the woods engaging with the natural world.
  • If someone does not like swift visual action/transitions or flashing lights, they might want to avoid the Civil War Journey media presentations inside the Mayfield & Nichols Dry Goods Store and The Raid.
  • If someone does not like loud noises, be aware that Civil War Journey has occasional gunfire demonstrations. The Mayfield & Nichols Dry Goods Store in Civil War Journey also has loud noises.
