We obviously had to stop after lunch in Mitchell, SD. It is very interesting but not much to see. If you are already in Mitchell go ahead and stop but if not pass on it.

I would say 30 minutes to an hour checking out the actual corn murals and reading the history, short movie. If you want to spend time in the shops, definitely add more time.
