#2 of 10 in Things to do in Fishers
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.

  • Excellent place to go with your family and enjoy some great family time. We went over the holidays and really had a lot of fun. The staff really goes out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time. This is a very unique place. A fun family outing.
  • We've been members for several years and always enjoy spending the day here. There's so much to do and they're always changing the activities available so there's always something new to see. We love the annual events like history on tap, Headless Horseman and the science days.
  • Did candlelit Christmas. It was great! Leaving the museum we left modern civilisation behind. No electricity anywhere in the village circa 1836! It was dark and the pathways were lit by the lanterns. Each house had a roaring fireplace - so close, right in front of you. The actors did a great job telling their stories. For a moment I felt like a time traveler!
  • Great place to take the kids. Had a meeting there, not great temp control inside if youre going to be sitting there all day with a large group, but that could have just been that day. In the fall, a stop at the Apple Store will make your day.
  • The was the first time I've ever been. We went for Conner scary. The haunted hayride was great. It was SUPER busy. I went on a weekday because I thought it would be less crowded. Couldn't see much because everything was already full of people! The corn maze was very unorganized, no signs where to enter or line up. I was so irritated after waiting in a line for nothing that we didn't even do it. Overall I feel like I wasted my money. I would like to go back sometime for their regular park.
