The Great Pumpkin Train

October 12 & 19, 2024

Tickets for The Great Pumpkin Train 2024 go on sale July 15, 2024

Join us on Saturday, October 12, or Saturday, October 19, 2024, for a family-friendly, fun-filled day celebrating all things fall.

Tickets are $18 per person. Everyone over the age of 2 years old needs a ticket. Children under 2 years old do not need a ticket.

Each admission to The Great Pumpkin Train includes a train ride to the pumpkin patch, where you can find your own pumpkin to take home with you! Your ticket also includes indoor live entertainment, crafts, trick-or-treat throughout the Museum grounds, games for children of all ages, a balloon animal, a not-so-scary haunted house, and the chance to operate our vintage handcar. The event will take place rain or shine, and all attendees can explore our historic trains and engaging exhibits.

The Great Pumpkin Train runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Your ticket gets you a ride on the train at the time you select, but you are welcome to participate in all of the other activities at any time throughout the day. Proceeds from this event support the Museum’s programs and operations.

Check out the train times, trick-or-treating spots, and where you can find our not-so-scary haunted house! You can also see the show times for Operation Lifesaver, Mischief & Magic, and our Costume Parade! The Great Pumpkin Train is a full day of family-friendly fall fun!
