THE NEXT GENERATION CORN PALACE
For over 120 years, the World’s Only Corn Palace has attracted the unusual, the notable, and the road-weary. This year, this whimsical building will undergo a royal transformation before your very eyes!
In addition to the annual redecorating, parts of the Palace will be under corn-struction while we work to bring an even greater experience for you to visit. New ear-chitecture, new interactive exhibits, and a new, welcoming design will make the Corn Palace more exciting than ever. The theme of 2015 is “South Dakota’s 125th”.
The remodel of the Corn Palace will feature larger exterior murals, new sign, custom-designed light-up domes, and a walk-out balcony – and that’s just on the outside! On the interior, you will be greeted with a new grand entry and lobby and a redesigned box office. For the first time in decades, you will also be invited to the second floor of the Corn Palace where you will find a beautiful Oscar Howe exhibit space and access to the front balcony.
Construction is scheduled to be complete in April 2015. The Corn Palace will remain open regular hours throughout the renovation.
See it before and aft-ear!
