Very fun for the family! You must snag a popcorn ball from the snack bar! Best $3 I've spent in a long time. Definitely go upstairs and on to the balcony overlooking street -- great vantage point. 2016 theme is Rock of Ages!

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.
