The Corn Palace is under reconstruction and refurbishment. I didn't get the full, corny experience. The city of Mitchell is a cute place to do a walk about.

We stopped by on our way to Mount Rushmore as a rest point. There were plenty of cute shops to stop at which was probably the best part for me. Unfortunately they were in the process of redoing all the murals so we didn't get to see very many of them. The inside was full of shopping, and there was... More

The corn palace was a disappointment. The outside murals were all torn down, with plans to create new ones. The inside murals were also in the process of being re-done. This Corn Palace is not as good a the one we visited 25 years ago. Quite a waste of time on our trip.

The Corn Palace is undergoing a renovation and upgrade. Can't wait to see the new murals in 2015. Be sure to check out the concert series - there have been a number of greats who have performed there over recent years. We were thrilled to see Peter Paul and Mary just several years ago.

We were here at the wrong time. They were renovating and a lot of the murals were not complete. However, it was interesting and on our way to Rapid City, so worth the stop.

Unfortunately the palace is undergoing renovation so we were limited to what could be seen. It is impressive to see how they put together the large pictures. It is worth making the stop.

This was the one place on our trip we could have done without. I understand they were under renovation of putting new corn on the outside but I still don't understand what is special about this place. I do think it's cool that they can do all the murals and stuff with corn but that's all it was. The gym... More

Wife and I were on our way to Rapid City. I had stopped here as a child and she had never seen it. Unfortunately, they are working on it and the onion bulbs are down. and not all the murals are in place. It was interesting to see a layout without the corn in place and the inside murals were...

Driving to Rapid City we had to stop at the Corn Palace. Even though it was a work in progress it was still interesting, with some murals completed and others only drawn outlines for the corn installers. Like most people not from the surrounding area our visit was dependent on our vacation schedule rather than the Palace completion schedule. Too... More

What isn't to like? Easy to find off the main highway 90. Free to enter. Incredible murals all made from corn cobs/corn parts. It's educational. Lots of souvenir opportunities and prices. Who knew there were so many different colors of corn and so many corny jokes!!??
