Maybe not a reason to go out of your way to see but if you are in the area and are a baseball fan you should stop by. It is a display in a mall and has some nice memorabilia.

If you are in Fargo there is no reason not to stop, as there is not much to do in the area. It is right in the mall, and really just a presentation of memorabilia and recreation of his locker. I am a baseball fan, and was going to be at the mall (three times in my 2 week stay).... More

stuck away in a corner of the mall that is not used much, you would not notice it unless you were looking for it, small, set back area. Definately not worth the visit unless you are a huge Roger Maris affectionato. Even then I think you would be disappointed.

Photos were awsome and it was fun seeing all his accomplishments. It would be nice if the Mall would expand on the exhibit.

Worth the trip especially if you are a baseball person. We watched the film and viewed the displays. It was a Saturday afternoon at the mall and noisy. It was difficult to hear the film. Try going at a more quiet time.

We visited on Friday, September 12, 2014. This is located in a regional mall, West Acres. There is an entrance on the south and east side, "Maris Entrance". This is a free attraction. I was a boy when Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in 1961. At that time we had no professional team to watch so we followed the... More

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.
