The Corn Palace is murals that are made from colored corn that they grow themselves, not dyed. each ear is cut in half by hand on a table saw(no guards) then stapled on guide like paint by numbers. We thought it was excellent and they change their murals every year.

We have been to corn palace twice and would go back in a heart beat. Each time was with different grandkids. They truly enjoyed the history and all that was there.

Corny in a nice way. An appropriate introduction to the mid-west. Informative and an interesting place for young kids to grandparents. If you are traveling Interstate 90, it's worth the stop. We stayed at the Fam e Fun RV campground and recommend it.

This was a huge disappointment when we found that they Corn Palace was under complete renovation! But, hopefully once it's done it'll be as cool as it was before they started. It has to be devastating to the area of the Corn Palace because once folks see that the building is covered with scaffolding and the famous onion domes are... More

but like others have said - it's a nice stop on your way through South Dakota - as long as you're going someplace else too. When we were there, they were doing major renovation and the main entrance was closed. The front was boarded up and access was through a side door. It's free to go in and look around... More

We attended the Tommy James & The Shondells concert. The lead in group was very good, but very loud. Tommy James was good, but even louder which spoiled the concert for our friends and us. Tommy James is a 50"s-60"s group, so the audience was primarily senior citizens and after the concert, we heard other complaints about the excessive volume.

This was my second trip to the Corn Palace. It was undergoing a transition while we were there adding two towers. Several panels were also being redecorated. There are corn panels inside the building as well. It is worth a detour off the highway for a visit, but not a special trip. Also in town is the George McGovern Museum.

The outside of The Corn Palace looked very interesting, but I am only giving it an average rating, because we were not able to go inside. It was closed for renovations. I would really liked to have seen this Corn Palace that we have heard so much about.

After many years of seeing pictures of the Corn Palace in text books and on the side of U-Haul trailers, it was a must stop for me. Although they were doing major renovations to the exterior, my family enjoyed our stop. After many miles of "nothing" along I-90, taking the short trip from the interstate was welcomed relief. Inside and... More
