Given Roger Maris' stature in baseball, we were expecting a museum befitting his legacy. Instead we saw a handful of his memorabilia set up in a mall storefront window. There was a tiny theater with perhaps 10 authentic stadium seats to watch a documentary on his life which you sadly could not hear due to mall traffic.

Nice Free attraction for any fan of the national pastime with dozens of Magazine covers from the era blown up and stats and info on his Fargo HS days. Set up in 1984 and supported by an annual golf tourney, it is a good way to spend 20-30 minutes with a nice video and Make Sure you go down the... More

The museum is situated in a lonely hallway in West Acres Mall which was wise given baseball afficianodos prefer moments to take in Roger Maris' amazing career in relative privacy. Wow, what an athlete in time where steroids were 50 yerars into the future. Roger Maris is a true American sports hero. Visit the museum and do not miss the... More

Not something worth traveling any distance for, but something interesting to look at while waiting around at the mall. There is a little video playing and a hallway full of Marris/Baseball items. But it is FREE. :)

Well it's located in a mail downtown. It's small, but the film dedicated to is life and career is Worth to be seen. The rest is behind a glass window. You learn a few thing from a great baseball player. Personal note what a bad thing that is still not a baseball hall of fame !!!!

Visited the mall for after Christmas and stopped at the museum. The exhibit is free and I enjoy sitting in the little theater watching the Roger Maris movie. A great addition to the mall.

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.
