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 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

The Corn Palace in Mitchell, S.D., about an hour west of Sioux Falls along Interstate 90 is a working municipal arena, adjacent to the City Hall. What makes the Corn Palace famous is the outside of the building is decorated with corn stalks and the theme of the display changes on a routine basis. While we enjoyed our visit on... More

There is a major renovation going on at the location right now so I would highly recommend not visiting as you really can't see a lot of the displays very well due to not being able to get close to them. Overall quite a disappointment.

We traveled to the Corn Palace expecting to see the structure that is publicized but instead found a modern building with construction going on.

While traveling, there are the wild, strange and the unusual to be found. For me, a unique site that I discovered was The World's Only Corn Palace, 604 N. Main St. in Mitchell, SD. An estimated 500,000 tourists from all over the United States and beyond, travel to this small area of the state to view the unique corn murals.... More
