Corn Palace

Corn Palace renovation has been completed.

[Gini, 08/09/2015]

The Corn Palace's new exterior, including LED-lit turrets and domes, was supposed to be ready in April 2015, but various SNAFUs extended the nation's already long corn palace coma. The renovation, which cost $7.2 million, was finally completed on July 27, 2015.

Just a heads-up: the Corn Palace is being renovated and the domes have been taken down. In addition, they are not lighting the building at night. You can still tour the interior and there are interesting murals on the outside walls. Don't miss the corn statue across the street.

[RK Caton, 07/06/2015]

The exterior of the Corn Palace was supposed to be completely renovated by Memorial Day weekend, but various SNAFUs have kept it a work-in-progress well into the 2015 summer travel season.

They are refurbishing, so, most of the exterior corn murals are gone or incomplete. They still have some inside, will be beautiful when done in 2016.

Corn Palace: Under Construction

Saw it just before the construction started. Talk about amazing! The fact that they take all the corn down each year and redo it is absolutely wonderful.
