Don't go hungry - it smells like a corn dog inside! *LOL*

What a neat place. I really enjoyed touring it and seeing the exhibits. It's not a long stop, plan for at least an hour or two. It's a good break if you're going between Sioux Falls and Rapid City and need to stretch your legs and relax.

Interesting landmark, they re-do the exterior every year in a different design made entirely out of corn...they have a display outside that shows how they do it, kind of a "colored corn by numbers" system. Interesting building! They have photos inside showing past years designs. It is also a basketball court and a place for concerts as well! (and of course, the obligatory gift shop and snack bar) An interesting side note: The photo of the 1914 Corn Palace shows a swastika made of corn on the front...this was and old Indian "Good Luck" symbol before Hitler and the Nazis ruined it for everybody.....this photo has a caption explaining why it is there! All in all, an interesting stop to break up the monotony if you happen to be driving across South Dakota!
