It is open year round so stop in and talk to our Visitor Center Travel Ambassadors. We provide free wifi, popcorn, and coffee for visitors...And the bathrooms are spick-and-span! The Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center is also home to the woodchipper from the movie 'FARGO.' Stop by and have your photo taken with the infamous woodchipper! We provide the (fake) leg and bomber hats to complete the photo op. Be sure to see the Celebrity Walk of Fame outside our visitors center with star signatures and hand & foot prints in cement. « less

Love the link to the "Fargo"cult of which we are fans. This visitor center was like a coffee shop atmosphere. Small group tables, library like set up of brochures and information with staff on side just like at library. Most visitor centers are sterile. Leave it to Fargo to be different. Tons of info and very helpful staff. And despite... More

Rare to be able to eulogise about outstanding customer service, but here Donna merits such praise. Friendly, informative and enthusiastic about her job she made our visit a delight. Presenting us with the certificate to record the completion of our 50th State was an added surprise and bonus. The whole wood chipper scene from The film Fargo added to an... More

There is also free coffee and popcorn for the guests. The person at the desk asks if you need anything, and goes back to their... More

Hi Jesse, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that the welcome you received wasn't what you expected. We are addressing the issue with our travel ambassadors so others who stop by the visitors center don't feel the same way. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We hope you'll recommend the...

We stopped here to see the woodchipper and take some pictures. The staff were very friendly, and helpful. We appreciated the free popcorn and a quiet spot to relax before heading back out on the road.

Visited Fargo because North Dakota was the last of the 50 states to visit. Stopped here to see the woodchipper from the movie. While there, I casually mentioned to the staff that we were in Fargo to make all 50 states. They broke out the celebration--they give you a fridge magnet and a signed certificate noting "your 50th state", take... More

If you are a fan of the movie, Fargo, you will want to stop here. It has the wood-chipper used in the movie as well as other artifacts. The young lady at the desk was helpful in selecting a place for lunch. Outside there is a walkway of famous people who have left their imprints. The Multiband building next door... More

Wasn't expecting much from this small-town visitor's center, but it was great! Firstly, they have a lot of movie stuff from the movie "Fargo." The biggest part is their woodchipper from the movie. They provide you with props to take pictures with and the people there offer to take pictures for you. It's a fun, quirky thing to do. They... More
