Crab Orchard Corn Maze and Pisgah Pumpkin Patch is an
outdoor classroom extension of Crab Orchard Museum
that emphasizes the importance of nature and history
while also enjoying the beauty of our landscape.

Each year's maze design focuses on a different theme relating to the history and culture of Southwest Virginia and Appalachia. 
Previous years' themes include Native American life, agriculture, the Burke's Garden Varmint, and mountain music.  

Corn Maze tours may also be combined with Pioneer Life tours to create a full-day Museum adventure.

Students will participate in a Pioneer Life or Corn Maze tour during the morning session,
followed by lunch in the picnic shelter, then enjoy the other tour experience during the afternoon.
