We did not go inside... Was disappointed that the turret/tower bulb thingies were dismantled and laying on the sidewalk, looked very haphazard. According to a shop owner at a tourist trap across the street, they had been on the sidewalk for months. Wish I has been able to see it in all of its glory!!

Anyone I've ever known who has been to South Dakota says you've got to visit the Corn Palace. I'm suddenly questioning the sanity of those people. This was a complete waste of time. Sure, the murals on the exterior and interior walls are made of corn, and that's kinda interesting. But otherwise, there's nothing to see here. On the day... More

They redesign these amazing murals both inside and out. This year celebrates the 125th anniversary of statehood. Reasonable souveneirs inside, and easy to park. And FREE!

This was a neat place. The video was interesting and the corn art was creative. But we missed the full experience due to renovation underway. We'll probably never have the opportunity to see it again. We spent about an hour there and it was OK for a free attraction.

Nice little side trip on our way out west. They are renovating right now, but it is still open to tour and free. It just doesn't look as fancy outside. got some yummy popcorn for a treat/ edible souvenir.

We stopped on our way west-it isn't much out of the way. There wasn't much going on inside as they were painting, fixing, and setting up the market area. Still the corn motifs were incredible. None of the corn is died. It is all natural. They change the decorations on the outside and were in the process of doing so.... More

This was amazing the exterior of the building has murals which are made of coloured corn, the corn is actually coloured as you will see with my pic. Inside also has murals including Mt Rushmore and a video explaining how it came about. The outside is changed yearly I think it was, the inside is just kept freshened up as... More

Well, the price is right. It's free. Worth one stop ... once. It wasn't what I expected. It is really just a large hall/gymnasium/auditorium decorated with corn on the outside and a gift shop / tourist trap inside. There is without a doubt, better things to see and do in Mitchell. I don't know what I was expecting, but I... More

The concept of decorating the palace with Corns - murals made of corns is quite innovative and interesting. Although this is an auditorium, the murals can be seen on the walls of the building - both inside and outside. Considering its free, its worth spending a 45 mins - 1 hour at this place

It was free; I'll give you that. The murals are very interesting and quite large, but due to construction, there was not much else to see. Only one gift shop was open in early May, but it did have some fun corn-related paraphenalia. I loved the gummy candy corn, and wish I had bought a few more packages.
