This unique museum displays rock specimens from all over the world. The museum was a brainchild of Mr. Paul Broste, a local farmer, artist and collector. He acquired only the finest specimens from all over the world. They were cut, ground and polished into spheres and slabs of unimaginable beauty.

Dr. John Hoganson of the State Geological Survey inventoried the entire collection while the museum was being renovated. He stated that the museum housed the most significant rock and mineral collection in the state of North Dakota and many of the unique specimens are so rare that they may be only found at museums like the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. or the American Museum of Art.

The museum is open May 1 through Labor Day, Wednesday through Saturday 12 - 4pm.
