Pumpkin Patch Express

Celebrate Fall with a trip to the Museum’s pumpkin patch! Pick the perfect pumpkin to decorate at home. Enjoy a variety of activities inspired by autumn. Then, climb aboard the train for a ride back to the station on the Ellerbe Creek Railway. Activities Include: Pick a pumpkin, Hay maze, Nature Bingo, Mini Golf, Rubber Duck Races, Take-home activities, Return train ride on the Ellerbe Creek Railway.

For the health and safety of our Museum community there will be some changes from the usual pumpkin patch experience. Guests will travel to the pumpkin patch site by way of the Dinosaur Trail path and may arrive at the patch anytime during their time slot. For example, if you have a 9:30 time slot, you may arrive at the pumpkin patch site any time between 9:30 and 10. This will help stagger guest arrival. Guests may stay at the patch as long as they like. The pumpkin patch site closes at 4:40 p.m. to allow for guests to exit the Museum by closing at 5 p.m. The train will run on a continuous loop at a lower capacity.
