Stopped here first on our first visit to the Fargo area. Staff was polite, friendly & helpful in giving us info on the area. Got a picture taken with the famous wood chipper from the "Fargo" movie. Gave us a great trip on a nearby restaurant - Kroll's. Worth the stop.

Stop here to get all your maps and brochures of things to do all around the area. And certainly don't miss the original woodchipper from the movie "Fargo"! There is other movie memorabilia there as well.

Very disappointed. We stopped here just because of the high tripadvisor reviews. It literally is one room with the Fargo wood chipper in the corner, a few small displays on the walls and racks of pamphlets. Not worth our time.

Had to stop when we heard the wood chipper from the movie "Fargo" was housed here in the lovely, well done visitor's center. We had our picture taken at the chipper, shoving a leg into it. Wierd , but fun. Lots of great info regarding the area as well.

I went to Fargo because North Dakota was the only state I had never been to. I was thrilled when I stopped by the Visitors Center, and met the most helpful young man named Anders. When I mentioned it was my 50th state, he told me so many people came there saying it was their 50 state, that they started... More

A great quick stop for travel info for Fargo and surrounding areas. Wished we had made a stop here at the beginning of our trip! Staff were pleasant. As everyone has mentioned - you get to take a photo with the woodchipper and there's a mini walk of fame outside which is worth a quick stroll. No need to budget... More

The staff was very friendly and got out the hats for the token wood chipper photo. We were able to get a ton of information on the area along with coupons. It was clean with free coffee and merchandise available for purchase (loved the Fargo- North of Normal gear).

This is not a large place--doesn't take a lot of time to see it, but I wanted to get my "Saved the Best for Last" certificate for seeing all 50 states, with ND being the last one. Yes, there's a certificate for that, and a T-shirt too! Of course, you have to take a photo with the woodchopper--it IS Fargo!... More

Three years ago I missed the wood chipper so that my wife could visit Laura Ingles Wilder's homes south of Fargo, Now it was my turn. Face it, I love the movie Fargo. The characters, plot, and filming are great. The wood chipper scene is just black humor at its best. So thank you Fargo for your preservation and promotion... More
