Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Hello, We would like to have our attraction listed under Indianapolis, Indiana so we can show up in the list of things to do in Indianapolis. As you can see, our physical address actually falls within the city of Fishers, Indiana. However, fishers is actually a suburb of Indianapolis that visitors would not be aware. Visitors that come to Indianapolis will look in "Indianapolis" for interesting things to do in our area. Is there a way we can get on that list? Conner Prairie, a nationally acclaimed outdoor history museum, is a fantastic day activity for children and adults of all ages. Perfect for families, groups, clubs, school field trips and more. Come explore the beautiful grounds of the park and visit different time periods in Indiana history. Areas include: 1816 Lenape Camp, 1836 Prairietown, 1886 Civil War Journey, the William Conner House and the 1859 Balloon Voyage. You may also enjoy meeting baby farm animals and learning about Conner Prairie's heritage breeds at the Animal Encounters Barn. Or take a ride on the 1859 Balloon Voyage, a helium filled tethered hot air balloon ride that takes you 350 feet into the air above the park. Don't forget the hiking trails, summer splash pad and the newest exhibit, a four-story tree house with integrated learning stations. The outdoor grounds at Conner Prairie are open to the public April-October with some limited hours. Please check the Conner Prairie website for current hours. The indoor Discovery Center, Create Connect and additional special programs are offered year-round. Museum Shop open year-round. Closed Mondays.

Reviewed November 26, 2013

Enter here and be taken back to the 1800's. Characters in period costumes and scripted conversation. Crafts and buildings and activities all focus on taking you back into history in an entertaining way. Great for all ages and all seasons of the year.

“absolutely amazing”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Been here several times. October is the best when you can partake in the headless horseman hayride. Very educational and something we have done many weekends over the summer.
