May 26-28

Conner Prairie Interactive History Park is open Memorial Day weekend with free general admission to military personnel and their families as part of the Blue Star Museums program, a partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. Celebrate the legacy of our nation’s veterans with a visit to 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana, where you can see Civil War cannons in action, learn about the life of a Civil War soldier and maybe even practice your marching skills. You can also revel in the life and vitality of spring by visiting one of our many gardens or marvel at the wild plants sprouting up along our wooded pathways. Be sure to visit Lenape Indian Camp to find out how Native Americans used wild plants for food and medicine as well as our other outdoor historic areas. Saturday, May 26, Sunday, May 27, and Monday, May 28 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission $14/adult, $13/seniors 65+, $9 youth (ages 2-12), free for members and youth under 2.
