The Elsing Museum is the area's largest exhibit of priceless minerals and natural crystal formations. Willard Elsing opened a rock and mineral shop on Route 66 near Joplin in the 1920s, and over a lifetime, his fascination for mineral and rock art grew into an unprecedented collection. Since 2001, his collection has been on display at Oral Roberts University for all to enjoy. Experience mineral art, precious gems, Oriental and jade sculptures and Native American rarities from around the world at this unique museum for all ages. We also do school class tours which are available by appointment on Wednesdays or Fridays at 10:40am.
