It's a stop on a quirky road trip. If you're in the area, you need to get off the highway to see it; at least give it that! The fact that you can say you've witness the "World's Only Corn Palace" (shocker, right?) is worth in and of itself. Free parking, a chance to walk around a bit (be honest,... More

of course ~ when you're in Mitchell ~ you have to stop here. they are still working on the building. but it's still worth your time to see the murals. yesterday was the beginning of the festival. there are some big names performing.

We knew we would be driving through the Mitchell area on our trip out west and we decided for laughs we had to stop at the Corn Palace. Our family name is Mitchell and we are from Indiana (Corn, get it?) so it was more of a "har har har" kind of "corny" thing. Anyway, when we arrived we were... More

Wanted to see this because we were curious. The murals on the outside were awesome. The place was under construction so we didn't go inside. The towers were off and placed in the street in front of the building so that road was closed. Got some great photos of the murals. If you like corn and unusual buildings it would... More

I was pretty excited when I saw this, the outside was really cool. Unfortunately the inside isn't as good as the outside. It's free to get in but there isn't much to do. They had little pieces of information and pictures that were okay. But the only other room that had stuff in it was the arena room where they... More

Whenever our family strife side trip to Mitchell to see The Corn Palace. While the kids don't always appreciate the hard work that goes into the artwork, it is never the less impressive. The main street around it is relatively cute and touristy. I'm sure will be back again.

They are completely refurbishing the Corn Palace this year and very little was done on the outside as of August. We had heard so much about the Palace and were disappointed that we couldn't see it at it's peak. So...if you are anxious to see this site, this might not be the best year to visit.

As you drive on the Interstate, you see signs advertising the Corn Palace and after a while, you start thinking - why not! So we stopped and we were surprised to say the least. It is corny! This was built in the late 1800's and has been an attraction since then, an amazing feat in itself. Yes, the inside is... More

We stopped here on our way to Rapid City, SD. It was a good rest and stretch your legs stop. And it was free. We enjoyed the murals on the outside but was not impressed inside. At least we got to see it and take a break from driving.
