Connor Prairie

We are one of the largest attractions in the region and one of the most visited outdoor museums in the country. We have a long history of innovation that spans the fields of science, history, art, and nature. On our grounds, every guest has the opportunity to pursue fun and knowledge in a way that is tailored to them. In a time where meals are rushed and everyone is in a hurry to get to soccer practice or ballet class, we provide families with multi-generational opportunities to come together, interact and learn in new and unique ways in the heart of Indiana. Each and every day, we inspire curiosity and foster meaningful interaction with unique, engaging experiences that donít exist anywhere else. Conner Prairie is Indiana's first Smithsonian affiliate. Visitors to Smithsonian affiliates throughout the country may view major works of art, historic objects of flight, wonders of nature, icons of American history and other artifacts, artworks and scientific specimens from the Smithsonianís national collections throughout the year.
