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

The palace has a nice exterior (although it was be worked on when I was there). I thought the artwork was interesting. Not much else to do though except buy touristy stuff. Nice break though from driving.

Unfortunately they were reconstructing a new design while we were there and because we went after dinner everything was closing down and did not get to go inside.

A silly thing to stop and see on your way west. We just happened to arrive during their annual redesign. It was interesting to see the finished parts versus the unfinished parts. I was surprised to see that the interior was a music hall. It was worth the hour visit. Admission was free.

Although the corn-cob mosaics are amazing, there is nothing else to see or do but shop in the (over-priced, of course) gift shop. Kids were not impressed.

This is a difficult review to make. Bottom line, it's a souvenir shop inside a building that is used by the residents as a gym and auditorium during the months when it's not used for tourist. It's one of those quirky places along the highway you need to stop at just to take a picture, maybe buy a souvenir and... More

We are on a long road trip. It's things like this that make the memories stick. It's not that this place is amazing, it's just fun. Great place to stretch your legs, use the bathroom, grab a snack and buy inexpensive trinkets. This was a stop my parents took us to more than 30 years ago. Just fun to share... More

Very nice place to shop wished that the shops around the palace had been open on Sundays because that is the day we was there.
