Best Museums in North Dakota

Does North Dakota have any haunted museums?

Oh yeah — and it’s where you’d least expect. Despite being a warm and cozy place to entertain and educate kids, the Children’s Museum at Yunker Farm in Fargo, North Dakota has a dark side: it’s apparently as welcoming to ghosts, as it is to kids. Maybe it’s not so surprising the museum is regularly deemed one of the most haunted places in North Dakota – it was, after all, first built as a farmhouse in 1876. In later years, it was transformed to the children’s museum it is today, but apparently spirits from its past remain, including a child-loving former owner and a ghostly kid by a well.

What are some hidden gems in North Dakota?

There are a lot of hidden gems in North Dakota that not many people besides the locals know about. Perhaps our most favorite is the Roosevelt Inn, a hotel in Watford City, North Dakota, that has a pretty big draw: a larger-than-life stone bust of Theodore Roosevelt’s head! This huge statue originally came from a park just outside the iconic monument in South Dakota. It was transported all the way up north to its place now and most people don’t even know it’s there!

What are some fun day trips in North Dakota?

North Dakota is a traveler’s dream, with lots of fun day trips for the curious. The Edinburg General Store in Edinburg, North Dakota is a total relic from the past — it’s been open for decades, and is just plain fun to peruse. If it’s scenic views you’re after, the Caprock-Coulee trail in the North Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park is an amazing natural wonder. Other than the unusual and fascinating “caprock” formations, this trail is simply stunning to behold. The trail also goes by some of the park’s famous prairie dog towns.
