Membership

The Best Way To Explore

A membership is the most affordable way to experience Conner Prairie. A Basic membership ($115) costs less than a family of four visiting twice ($124). Members enjoy a full year of engaging with science, history, art and nature in outdoor grounds and our indoor learning and play areas. These experiences are made possible by the support of members like you!

Members receive a wide range of discounts on everything from classes and other programs to purchases on food and retail. All members receive 10% savings at the Conner Prairie Store and Cafe on the Commons. Members also receive FREE admission to daytime special events and FREE admission to Headless Horseman on select nights.
