Friends and colleagues talked up the Corn Palace as an experience not to be missed. I must say that the outside of the building, decorated in corn, was impressive. Inside is more of a series of historical pictures showing the decorated Palace throughout the decades instead of an interactive museum. Kids might be bored. There's a gift shop across the... More

You have to see it if you're in the area. Best part is the outside walls. Inside there are more corn mosaics and photos of all the past designs.

Stayed over in Mitchel, and when we drove to the Corn Palace, it was not open. Another disappointment. I have to say that the outside was quite impressive in a strange way. I thought it was more oddly attractive than other architectural attractions. Don't know if we'll get the chance again, Mitchell is not exactly a big reason to return.

This stop along our trip across country was pretty a-maize-ing! People told us it was just a tourist trap but I'm really glad we stopped. The Corn Palace is the one and only remaining corn palace in the world - we learned local history of the corn palace era. The outside of the corn palace is made from mostly corn... More

The hours stopped me from going in. 8-5 and I wish they were open later. The outside is amazing though. The amount of work they put into it is unreal. Absolutely will be back to check out insides.

We routed through Mitchell on our way back home from a west coast road trip. We had read about the corn palace and figured we likely wouldn't be back through this part of the country so let's stop by while we're in the neighborhood. As luck would have it, we were about 2 weeks late. Their season is from Memorial... More

If you like quirky, roadside attractions, then you have to see this for yourself, if only to say that you've been here and get a photo in front of "The world's only corn palace". The murals outside are impressive, if you stop to think about what really went in to the displays. The gym has displays inside also, made of... More

the Corn palace reinvents itself every year. It is a unique building that I have been enamored with since the 90's. every time I see it it is different. Artwork from grain. inside there are pictures of all past building exteriors and Mitchell is tourist friendly with shops that reflect the area.
