Located in Mitchell
, South Dakota
, which is also home to a doll museum
and a balloon
and airship museum
, the Corn Palace is a glorified high school gymnasium
. The exterior is designed with Kremlin
-shaped spires, and is decorated entirely with various grains
, with a different theme each year.
The Corn Palace also sells a variety of Corn Palace related items - there's virtually no souvenir knick-knack you can't find here, and all purchases are placed into biodegradable plastic-like bags made from corn.
Admission is always free.
