Beautiful site with the corn murals updated each year on the outside of the building. Additionally, there have been multiple physical upgrades to the structure making it an excellent venue for basketball games, concerts, etc to accommodate large crowds.

My husband, our son, a friend and myself visited. We weren't sure what to expect. We had zero expectations. We were impressed with the history. The people were very, friendly and knowledgable. I recommend watching the short videos. The detail and accuracy used to make the Corn Palace is awe inspiring. We enjoyed ourselves. We recommend highly.

How can you not stop to see this when driving by Mitchell ? Come on people it's free! The place has AC and a great gift shop. The kids thought it was cool. The outside should be marketed to bird watchers as the worlds largest bird feeder. You can have that idea for free!

This place is fun to look at! If you enjoy architecture or designs this place is for you. I enjoy these things so looking at the pattern and the color of the corn was a lot of fun for myself. My wife had never been so she also enjoyed seeing a "palace made out of corn". I mean who thinks... More

We were advised to visit the corn palace by several people on our summer road trip, and given all the hype, we were pretty excited to see this palace made of corn. First off, we thought this was going to be in a more rural location, but in fact, it was in the middle of a town, which was a... More

My wife and I had seen stories about the Corn Palace on television for years, so when our holiday travel plans took us past Mitchell, South Dakota we knew we had to stop. I would not suggest going out of your way to see the Corn Palace, though, like most arenas, they do hold events there that you might enjoy...... More

Let me start by saying we saw this attraction at about 7AM, so dark out. Would have been more impressive in the daylight. But we were most disappointed to find this in the middle of downtown surrounded by buildings and streets. In all pictures we had seen it looked like it was a bit out of town with nothing around...

When you drive the long Interstate highways through the plains areas, finding an attraction to stop at is a nice reprieve from driving. The Corn Palace is one of those nice stops. Though you can't pass up the pun of saying it is a very "corny" attraction, it is quiet amazing when you look close at all of the murals... More

On our way home from the Black Hills we stopped here. It was the first time for my son to see the Corn Palace and he loved it. Something different and fun. Very well done and updated.
