Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, Conner Prairie Interactive History Park offers the chance to immerse yourself in America's era of westward expansion and development. Visit the park, home to a house itself listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and delve deep into the 19th century, when this rural area began to grow as the nation's heartland. Wander the street of the town, recreated to resemble its appearance in 1836, and explore the array of replica businesses, sights, and reenactors dressed in period clothing. Afterward, make your way to the Civil War experience, which documents the defense of the area from a daring Confederate raid in 1863. You can also wander the park's network of nature trails to enjoy the nearby forest and even see some local animal residents.

When planning our trip to Indy, I wanted a place we could go to the first afternoon after arriving in the city. I had looked at Connor Prairie online and it seemed like a good option. I was amazed how... read more »
My wife and I love the summer concert series and the holiday events at Conner Prairie. The wide variety of activities and events means there is usually something for everyone to enjoy.
I'd heard of Conner Prairie many years ago and was happy to be able to visit. I liked the way it showed the settlement of Indiana in several time periods. Docents in costume and character were excelle... read more »
Went there for the Michael Jackson experience with Who's Bad. I think it was really good concert. * It's really nice outdoor setting and you can go up on balloon too. * We didn't come early enough, so we didn't get a really good spot to sit. * Most of the great section of the lawn going to be booked by companies, so make sure you come early. * Coming out after the concert was pretty bad as we were stuck for almost 45 minutes and people were cutting everyone else left and right.
This is an awesome outdoors venue. They had the Temptations and 4 Tops playing. It's got a top notch stage, facing an open meadow with a gently rising hill. You can bring coolers with food and drink. Alcoholic beverages are welcome. Bring your chairs, your blankets, your food, your drink, you can relax and enjoy the music, or put your dancing shoes on and come down to the dance floor and get your groove on. They also offer exclusive seating for a bit more, your under the tent with comfortable couches and chairs, your own bar that serves drinks and food. They showcase all genres of music through the summer. If you have an opportunity, check it out.
Overall a very interesting attraction, they over charge you once inside though. Very expensive for a soft drink, $2.50 for a 20oz, Dasani the same. I really like to ng my daughter here but feel exploited by the concession prices. The staff are amazing and are so true to era that it is so entertaining listening to my little one explain what an iPad is....lol. Awesome place.
This review is in regards to a Summer Camp refund. Summer camp is roughly 210-220 a week. In order to cancel a week and obtain a full refund, one must cancel at a minimum of 3 weeks in advance (there is also a $30 cancellation charge). I was 1 day off, and they still will not give me my money back. I have spent over $5000 in summer camps for about 5 years at this place, and I'm appalled that they will not give me this reimbursement because of 1 day. I understand that I was outside of the specified period of time. On top of that, the lady i spoke with was going to go right ahead with charging me that $30 cancellation fee, despite the fact that a.) my daughter wouldn't be going to the camp b.) I would not be receiving ANY of my money back..... So I asked her, "Why are you even going ahead with trying to charge me, if your not giving me any kind of reimbursement??" She just giggled. I said "forget about it." then hung up the phone. I do want to add though that my daughter has had an amazing time in all of those years at summer camp. However, do to this upset and the repetitive nature of the weekly day camps, we will not be returning.
I just love this place. It's so magical. I've seen Quidditch matches, the headless horseman, enjoyed the amazing scenery, and much more. So delightful every time.
