*Conner Prairie has extended our temporary closure of all the buildings and grounds in response to the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice. The health and safety or our members, guests, staff, animals, and community remains our top priority.
Conner Prairie is a unique historic place that inspires curiosity and fosters learning by providing engaging and individualized experiences for everyone.
We're living on the edge of history. At Conner Prairie, every guest has the opportunity to pursue knowledge and fun in a way that is tailored to them. As 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. We inspire curiosity and foster meaningful interaction with unique, engaging experiences that don’t exist anywhere else.
We created what has become our nationally recognized “Opening Doors” approach. Opening Doors is an approach that has since been adopted by our peers across the country.
-It was created by extensively studying our guests and their interactions on our grounds.
-Allows guests to experience history first-hand, not just by watching historic methods and listening to lists of facts.
-Provides unique, tailored and relevant experiences for every guest on each visit, not just their first one.
-Has won local, state and national recognition for shaping immersive guest experiences.
