One of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, Corn Palace is often known as the World’s Only Corn Palace. Decorated with corn and other type of grains, you will find this building in a different colour each year. Every year, a different design is made which replaces the old one. Completed in the year 1921 you will find a tinge of archaic charm to its construction. Today, it is available to all as an arena for sports and art. Tournaments, concerts, exhibitions and many more type of events are held here on a regular basis. One of the main festivals celebrated here is the Corn Palace Festival.

There is certainly nothing else like it, so I would definitely suggest seeing it at least once in your life. However, a corn palace is pretty much all it is. We didn't stay there long at all, 15 minutes was plenty of time to get some pictures, check out the history, and buy some popcorn for the trip. Very cool, just make sure you plan other things during the day as well!
Disappointing visit. Definitely NOT worth any out-of-the-way travel to see it! Not at all what we expected. There wasn't really much to see except looking directly up on the outside of the building at the corn designs which were pretty intricate but hard to see. There are historical portraits and posters on the walls inside which are interesting but we didn't spend much time browsing there. A local college basketball team was practicing in the center gymnasium. They seemed to garner attention from visitors more than the palace itself.
Great visit. Take time to go inside and look at a historical timeline showing how the Corn Palace has been decorated over the years! Very interesting!
Murals are cool. The inside is a basketball course with a gift shop on top of it during the summer. Lots of community events happen here (prom, dance recitals, concerts, band performances, etc)
It has a lot of history. My wife and I have been trying to see all of South Dakota 's fabulous wonders. It's a decent place to visit. Back in its hay day is was really popular for celebrities.
