At Conner Prairie, we strive to ensure all individuals and families have access to the Museum's 1,046 acres of educational experiences. Our programs nurture the values, traits and skills that foster responsibility, respect, persistence, self-awareness and inclusion.

Your gift makes a difference to the families that visit Conner Prairie. Your support keeps the cost to visit Conner Prairie affordable and enables us to offer reduced admission to families of armed services members or to families in need. Your gift empowers the Conner Prairie staff to create new experiences, test new ideas, to put more of our beautiful land to use, and to uncover new historical stories.
