Frequently Asked Questions

Tickets for the 2022 Miners' Pumpkin Patch will go on sale later in the year.  Please check back for more details in early summer.

I see purchasing your ticket in advance is cheaper than at the door, why is that?

We want to encourage folks to purchase your ticket in advance so we can get a better count of how many guests (make sure we have enough pumpkins, and our food vendors can plan for food).  Plus, it helps us to make sure we are keeping room for everyone to be safe and have enough space.  You do not have to select a TIME to come to visit us, just a day.  Thank you for reserving your spot in advance!

Is Museum admission included in our ticket?

Museum admission is extra...but as our thank you for supporting WMMI at the Harvest Festival and Miners' Pumpkin Patch, we are giving you a discount to the museum when you come to either the Harvest Festival or Pumpkin Patch.  Thank you for supporting your local, non-profit museum!

How long should we plan to stay?

That depends!  There are lots of games and activities, and opportunities for exploring our 27 acre campus.  Make sure you take some photos, maybe get lunch,  a cup of coffee or a treat.  Or, if you just want to grab your pumpkin and can do that too!  (But we would suggest you plan about 2 hours for the outdoor events) A full schedule of events will be posted on our Facebook page and look for an email with that information if you purchase online. 

Can we reserve a time for our team or group?

Yes you can!!!  Contact Jaime for full details---the Pumpkin Patch makes a GREAT group event!  719-488-0880 or
