Russian/Moorish-styled Mitchell Corn Palace, decorated with murals and designs from corn and other grains, features a new design every year. New murals are designed annually out of more than 275,000 ears of corn to cover the outside of the building. This tradition began in 1892, when town officials decided to showcase crops in an effort to get pioneers to realize the potential of the soil so they would settle in the area. Today, the palace is a multipurpose building, hosting numerous community events and exhibits. You can see pictures from the previous years' happenings.

  • A friend told me that the building was made entirely of corn, so that's what I expected to see. Corn mosaic murals is what it is. 
  • The building itself is unique. The decorations are all done with natural materials change annually and are really impressive. It is a unique place to visit. I only wins we had allowed more time. 
  • The corn murals change every year. It's one of these things that's are to imagine. A friend told us about it and she always has good recommendation 
  • Great place for a semi quick stop with the kids. The palace has some really neat murals on the outside and inside they have some great information about the place. The kids love the Amazing Maze Room there was so much stuff to do for them in there we could have stayed there another hour just playing.
  • It's the Mitchell Corn Palace! Of course, one of those things you have to do. And it doesn't take a whole lot of time, honestly. Most everything is outside on the walls. Inside is simply a semi-permanent crafts fair in a gym. Yes, spoiler alert, the Corn Palace is actually a gym.
  • Very good history and pictures inside. Tours available. Lots for the kids to do. Upstairs is full of corn related activities. Main floor includes an actual combine cab with video screen so kids can pretend to combine corn.
  • We where there on Sept 5, 2016. We went to Corn Palace and across the street to one of the little gift shops. Our Black Camera went missing and if anyone has seen it or picked it up could they please email me. We are on our Honeymoon and all of our pictures are on it. This camera was a gift and very dear to us. Please help us bring it home. Contact Amanda or Tyler at
  • The murals are impressive - a true community effort. The history of corn palaces is also interesting. I never knew this was a thing before. They have a souvenir shop with everything you can imagine made out of corn.
