where else are you going to visit a palace decorated with corn?

This is a unique stop in Mitchell SD. It's worth a stop when visiting SD. The murals are changed every year so it's always new.

This is a nice stop and break from a long road trip, but it is more of a tourist stop now. The corn murals are great to look at and wonder how this art could be done with corn, but it was not what I expected.

The building exterior is covered with murals and decorations, all made from corn. Quite a work of art. Have never seen anything like it. Glad that we got a look inside, where there are more on murals and decorations.

It is the most amazing bird feeder. Designed anew each year in Lakota Honor. A sacred beautiful spiritual experience. I love the town and the people. A very safe culture. All the streets are paved in rose quartzite. The speed limit is 25 mph. Very safe space.

The World's Only Corn Palace in Mitchell, S.D. is completely worth the stop off I-90. We've seen many things in our travels but this is by far the most unusual. Just a few minutes off the interstate and you're there. You can take a self-guided or guided tour of the Corn Palace. It's the only place we've ever visited where... More

This place was worth stopping to see, but it's definitely out of the way. If you like interesting Americana or unique experiences, this place is for you. Apparently they change the design every year, so you could come back again and again for a different view!

Unless you find yourself in Mitchell do not waste any time traveling to the corn palace. I drove from Sioux Falls and it was the most useless trip ever. The palace is under construction currently, but even if it isn't there was nothing to see or do there. There are the corn murals on the outside which are definitely interesting... More

Followed the amazing signage to this place (palace is a bit of a stretch) and joined the long line-up of locals who were attending a local high school Basketball game. The palace, decorated in corn-husk sculpture & accompanying souvenir shops, is actually a wonderful arena, complete with new upholstered (& very comfortable seating), great sight-lines, and ecoustics. Truly .... not... More

Last summer my nieces came to visit and we stopped downtown and they were in awe of the real castle. They thought they were in a fairy tale. I'd never experienced it that way before. Can't wait to bring them back this summer.

The history of the place and seeing the art made of corn is cool, but it's not that interesting. The inside just had booths of cheap knick knacks we thought there would be some type of museum, but there was only a video playing near the back about the history. I don't know how it is the rest of the... More
