The Paul Rock Broste Museum was the idea of local farmer, artist, and collector, Paul Broste. The Museum features his rock collection that he began at an early age. Most of it were acquired during the 1920?s and the 1930?s, during the time when not so many people are interested in purchasing rocks. Mr. Broste was only interested in acquiring the finest specimens around the world. He had them cut, grounded, and polished into spheres and slabs of unimaginable beauty. It was Paul Broste?s dream to have a museum that would house his collections.

Today, the Museum is said to contain the most significant rock and mineral collection in North Dakota. Much of the unique specimens here are very rare that they can only be found in the likes of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC or the American Museum of Art. The collection also features priceless fluoride crystals that cannot be found anywhere else. Visitors to the Museum will also be able to view its award winning sphere trees.
