It was cool to see the one time, but I probably won't go back. It's a giant gym basically covered in corn. They did beautiful things but there are other areas I wish to visit in the future.

We decided to visit the Corn Palace since we have heard a lot about it. The Corn Palace was still being worked on while we were there and barriers were up around the building. The Corn Palace was "ok" for a one-time visit, but I don't think I would make the effort to see it again. It took longer to... More

Everyone told us that we needed to see the Corn Palace. Well, it was interesting to see all the murals that were made with corn. However, they were renovating the building. The inside of the building is a gift shop. Many of the items were cheaper than we've found at other places. they did have a lot of items related... More

We were on our way to the Black Hills and stayed overnight in Mitchell. In the morning we checked out the Corn Palace which was undergoing a major renovation. Almost all of the corn had been removed. The inside is just a big gymnasium with all things corn. They souvenirs galore. Don't make a special trip, but if you are... More

Shame on you all. Instead of show-casing America's sweet corn, you sold my daughter and I what was nothing but field corn. Big fat yellow ears - of field corn. Granted, it's been a slow start to the season for corn, but there's no excuse for not making the effort to serve decent sweet corn - if not from South... More

I was travelling across country with friends, saw sign after sign for this place so we stopped. Big mistake. This place is the definition of tourist trap. The building is a convention center with corn stuck to the side of it, when you go inside there are flea market type crap for sale. The whole area is a waste of... More

Yes, I realize the exterior ornamentation changes every year, but it appeared what they have going on this summer (2014) is a bit more involved and expansive than "normal." I can't recall when they typically have the exterior completed but I was surprised they weren't any further along (again, because of major renovations to the building's exterior this year?) in...

I was here when I was younger with my grandparents. I saw the finished product. As for our stop this year...the Corn Palace was under construction. The murals that were done are intriguing to view (neat art form). As for the inside...Souvenir shop! My kids will always remember this as part of our trip because it's not like anything else... More

The outside and roof turrets are currently under a $4 million dollar reconstruction. Consequently, the only thing to view at this time are the outside corn murals and the very large gift shop which does have an abundance of interesting items to view and purchase. If we had known about the reconstruction ahead of time, we probably would have skipped... More
