Corn palace is listed in a road trip book that our son was interested in so we stopped on our way to the Badlands. The outside was far from palatial, and there was very little to see indoors aside from the large gift shop. It seems their second floor is being renovated, which is where the corn sculptures are normally... More

I am not sure what we expected - but this place is corny. The building is completely decorated with corn on the outside - well that's what all the signs say so it isn't a total surprise. Inside it is ... well... a place to buy corn-related souvenirs. So if you are pining for a tee shirt with a corny... More

We were there with two other couples and we were all just amazed at what we were seeing. Art from corn. It was well worth the drive to see it, We were there for about two hours and I'm not sure we saw everything there was to see. A nice selection of gifts and photos. I suggest buying a book... More

You won't find this place on every corner. What a cool place to stop and see some history of Mitchell and better understand how corn plays a role in everyday life. Must stop if you are in the area.

We got to the corn palace and almost none of the building was put together, Very disappointing for the kids, but we should have checked the status of the building.

Yes it is a tourist trap, but what else were you really expecting. You have got to stop if you are in the area if for nothing else than a popcorn ball. Visit the gift shop across the street and talk Urma. She was so kind and gave us the heads up on what to do in the Black Hills.... More

While there is not much to do at the Corn Palace, it is still worth the side trip. It is kind of neat to see the pictures made of corn. The rest of my family did not want to stop, but I'm glad we did if for no other reason than to check it off the bucket list. It will... More

We were staying in Mitchell anyway, so this was a neat little trip after dinner. I didn't know that a) everything on the outside is made with corn and b) the murals change every single year, according to a theme. Kitchy but cool. :)

The corn palace is a fun attraction with large murals made from corn cobs. Like nothing you've ever seen. The facility has a snack bar and gift shop along with clean restrooms. If you are near Mitchell, SD you must stop here. You've nee seen anything like this before.
