(380+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you even ever-so-slightly enjoy history, you should put Conner Prairie on your to-do list. Perhaps my favorite part of the park is the interactive town known as 1836 Prairietown, where the "townspe...  more »
  • Google told me that people usually spend 2 hours here. Those must be pass holders, because we spent 5, and could easily have been there longer, but it was closing time. We enjoyed everything about Con...  more »
  • I hadn't visited this site for many years, and I was pleasantly surprised at the interpretation and the many interactive features. The historic character interpreters are great, they stay in the 1830s...  more »

  • This place is awesome. The staff and actors do a great job making the experience fun and inviting. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable about the era and all things to do with it. I recommend spending a day there just strolling around chatting and learning.
  • The living village is awesome! My son (6 years old) loved watching the blacksmith. I asked the smith if he could build me a replacement knee and he said he could but wasn't sure if the local doctor could put it in.
  • Great place for kids to learn about what life was like back in the time of William Conner. The guides were very helpful and made it seem like they were really from long ago. There is enough to do to keep the kids occupied as well.
  • We live in Fishers and frequent CP once/week every week of the year. My daughter is 3 so it's nice to pop in to the indoor play area for 45 min in winter months so she can meet friends. The outdoor areas are our favorite part though. The Treetop Outpost and Animal Encounters are MUST SEES each time we visit. I think the front desk people could be a little more friendly but every other staff member has been great! We're excited for the new Makers Space building!
  • Really enjoy going here. There is alot to do, something for every age. My son loves going out there and running around. They also have a lot of extra activites through out the season. They take very, very good care of their buildings and outside, they are always clean.
