TIFTON – Visitors can pick out the perfect pumpkin or travel through the train-shaped corn maze beginning Oct. 3 when the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College opens its annual pumpkin patch and corn maze locations.

Museum Director Garrett Boone said the corn maze is included in the Museum and Historic Village’s admission price. Admission is not required to visit the pumpkin patch.

Located at the Country Store near the entrance to the Museum, the pumpkin patch will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Prices for pumpkins start at $5.

While adults pick out the perfect pumpkin for a jack-o-lantern, children can choose their own pumpkin or play on the tire swings, seesaws, the ever popular corn box, and the brand new swing set. The pumpkin patch also has a number of photo spots to create the perfect fall family pictures.

The corn maze will be open to visitors from Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. throughout the month of October. In recognition of the Museum’s 1917 Vulcan steam locomotive, the maze is cut into the shape of a train.

Admission to the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village on Tuesday-Friday is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors (age 55 and over), $4 for children 5-16 years of age, and free for children four and under. Saturday admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (age 55 and over), $5 for children 5-16 years of age, and free for children four and under. Saturday visitors can take a ride on train cars pulled by the 1917 steam locomotive. Train rides are included in the price of admission.

For more information on the pumpkin patch or corn maze, interested persons can contact the Museum at (229) 391-5205.
