Hello, We would like to have our attraction listed under Indianapolis,...

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.

I used to go to Conner Prairie and have now taken my own children. It never gets old! It is easy and convenient and they offer many special activities as well; for example, Symphony on the Prairie.

This is a "hidden gem" that is on every "must see" list. Costumed interpreters help make the prairie come alive. It's easy to imagine the way life must have been. Extremely well curated exhibits--both permanent and temporary, you can see why this museum is affliated with the Smithsonian. The balloon ride allows for an amazing view of the grounds as... More

We held a multi-day business meeting at Conner Prairie for people that were coming in from all over the United States, and the facility, location, and food could not be beat! The staff was phenomenal, and it provided a place for us to go that was back in the woods while still being close to amenities on the north side... More

Conner Prairie is a good experience for all ages. They have indoor and outdoor areas. A trip back to the past when everybody can learn something new. The actors are doing a great job engaging the kid visitors while they're learning about how people lived before computers, tv and flying was common.
