Free museum in the West Acres mall that showcases Fargo's own Roger Maris the legitimate steroid-free single season home run king. 61 in 61. If you're a baseball town and in the area a great little place to stop. A modest museum for a modest man.

Small free museum inside of the Fargo Mall. Lots of Roger Maris information. Even the non-baseball fans in our party enjoyed it. I loved sitting in the orignal stadium seats. Very interesting video. It is well worth the stop and in a beautifully decorated mall.

A sweet little museum in a shopping mall in Fargo, dedicated to a man who seemed like a really great guy and a great ball player. Well laid out and presented, with videos as well. Open whenever the mall is open (even before the stores are open) and available for anyone, just like Roger wanted it.

This is a small museum in a shopping mall but it is worth the trip. It is very well organized and presented. Our whole family liked it. You leave there with the feeling that Roger Maris was truly a good and decent person,not just a great baseball player. We also made to the trip to his grave site which was... More

Definitely worth a trip -- view the film (about 45 minutes) all about his life. Outside in the showcases are bats, signed baseballs, trophies, etc. Learned a lot about this remarkable modest man.

We stopped at the West Acres shopping mall and discovered a gem in the Roger Maris Museum. It is in a corridor of the mall and has plenty of memorabilia, a cute little theater with stadium seats, and an interesting display about Maris and his family. It was a fun hour with a focus on one player rather than a... More

While not a destination, this is well worth visiting if you are in Fargo area and are a baseball, or sports in general, fan at all. It is especially rewarding if you are old enough to remember the excitement of 1961 with Maris and Mantle both chasing the magical 61 home run mark. Despite Ford Frick's inane asterisk pronouncement, the... More

This is worth seeing, located in West Acres Mall. Really a storefront type display with a small area to view some video clips. Yankee Stadium seats are neat and it doesn't take long to see everything. We really didn't know much about Maris and this was interesting. It's free.

Its just a reason to walk into a shopping mall. There is nothing here that even makes you feel like you have been a part of Maris's life.

Easy access to view the memorabilia in a mall. Open to the public, no charge. Interesting displays with all the items you'd expect in a Hall of fame.
