The Corn Palace is a place you need to see when traveling through South Dakota. Murals of Willy Nelson and Elvis made out of corn stand out as you approach the building. Inside there are old time displays of the midwest, and souvenirs to be purchased. Young kids may find it boring, but adults will be intrigued.

Unless you're going there for an event, all you are going to do is take pictures, shop the gift shop and check out exhibits they have about the history of the place. Don't get me wrong, it's worth the stop just for the photo ops. The gift shop was on the arena floor when we visited. there are corn murals... More

The Corn Palace is a living relic from the past, but remains lots of fun for kids and grown ups alike. Weird but wonderful. This year's corn murals -- celebrating rock and roll -- are a nice change of pace. Be sure to go inside and admire the corn murals in the gym/auditorium as well. The wall displays explaining the...

W stopped in Mitchell on our way to Mt Rushmore. We figured we'd pop in really quickly to see this. It's really just a gymnasium that's decorated with corn murals. They are nice murals but not really a tourist site.

A friend of my wife's had told her about the Corn Palace and since we were driving right past Mitchell we decided to stop by. We expected it to be close to the interstate, which it is not, little did we know that it was here long before anyone had imagined an interstate highway system. It is probably a couple... More

Completely enjoyed this stop. It's amazing to see what they do with the corn. The murals are awesome. Friendly staff, plenty of bathrooms and best of all it's FREE!

I thought for sure it was made from corn but most of the building is bricks and mortar. Not much inside either. It was okay I guess. At least they didn't charge for admission. It was good for me just to say I've been there but I wouldn't be missing anything in my life if I never went. Got to... More

My brother in law got all excited when he learned that my husband and I were planning to drive our daughters car from NJ to Novato, CA where she was moving. "You have to go to the Corn Palace" he gushed. "It's really cool." I was a bit skeptical about a place decorated with corn but he kept insisting and... More
