Corn Palace, Mitchell, South Dakota.
During the summer months the World's Only Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD offers free guided tours led by friendly guides full of a-maize-ing facts (like how many nails and staples are used in the decoration process). The tour also features an outstanding video explaining the Corn Palace story. After the tour you can view displays about the Corn Palace, watch murals being created outside (Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.), check out what entertainment has played the Palace in the past, learn how the different colors of corn are grown, and shop for souvenirs in our large gift shop.
The theme for 2012 is Saluting Youth Activities. The new murals started to go up in June 2011 and will continue to be created until about September 2011. The process takes most of the summer because we have to wait for four different crops to be ready to harvest: milo, sourdock, rye and, of course, 12 different colors of field corn!
