We are opening an hour early (9-10 a.m.) for guests with autism and sensory or developmental challenges to visit Conner Prairie and enjoy a quieter experience.

We trust that the public will respect this time for guests who will benefit from smaller crowds. Guests will have full access to the park and its offerings such as interacting with baby animals, self-guided exploration of outdoor historical areas, crafts and more. Please note: 1859 Balloon Voyage will not be flying from 9-10 a.m.

If needed, guests can find designated areas marked as Anthem Medicaid Quiet Spots (map), which offer a quiet location with a sensory kit that includes a weighted blanket and soft sensory toys, among other items. Guests must arrive between 9-10 am to receive free admission but can stay for the entire day. Our complete story guide to visiting Conner Prairie is a very helpful tool in planning your visit.
