There aren't even words to describe the amazing use of corn as mosaic tiles to decorate a building. Don't do a special trip but if you are driving by be sure to stop.

When I heard Corn Palace I assumed it was a palace. I was horrified when I entered the building and found out it is a gymnasium? Very deceiving yet it was nothing spectacular.

Great fun. It is a remarkable structure and a testament to the western and mid west spirit. Lots of fun looking at the new structure and pictures of the old ones. It is interesting to follow the progress of the structure and its changes. Fun for all ages.

I live not far from this place, but I first saw it when I came to this area 40 years ago. It's one of a kind, so stop in when you get through here.

This is one of those attractions you should really see when passing through Mitchell. Even if you don't go inside you can walk around it and see the variety of murals showcasing South Dakota. The murals are changed yearly. Currently the palace inside is being renovated, you can read more about it on the Corn Palace website.

This is one of those places was really hyped up but for us didn't quite live up to expectations (to be fair It was undergoing some renovations during our visit). Basically a large auditorium decorated in murals both inside and out made of corn with a gift shop inside. Admission is free and you get the satisfaction of saying you've... More

I especially drove to Mitchell, SD to see this lovely attraction and the trip was worth it. Although there were changes being made both inside and out all were welcome (at no charge) to visit. I loved watching how the murals are made and learned a great deal from the owners of the gift shop next door. Don't miss this... More

Considering how many reviews I write, you think I would have read someone else's!! I have always wanted to see this place; it seems like a great part of roadside Americana, so I guess I would have been disappointed either way. They are doing the new murals, which is very cool to see the in process work being done. The... More

The whole outside palace/indoor gym was decorated in different colored corn. There isn't much to do other then seeing the neat designs and admiring the history of the building. I guess there are plans in the works to put in some sort of museum there soom. There is a gift shop across the street. It's worth seeing if you haven't... More
