This is a wonderful tribute to Roger Maris. Being in this popular shopping mall makes it accessible to everyone. I talked with people who are not big baseball fans who still enjoyed this gem.

Yep. It's a small area in the West Acres Mall dedicated to Roger Maris. There's a little movie and some memorabilia. If you have 15 minutes to kill and want to brush up on Maris legend, this will fill the bill.

Well, this little spot in the West Acres Shopping Mall you can walk by a million times and not stop. But last week I did and I am glad I did. Those blue ball stadium chairs were not that comfortable. A very nicely done film about the life and career of Roger Maris and how tragically his life ended. Nice... More

we didn't know about the museum we were at the mall and just came across it. It was interesting to see. Baseball enthusiast visiting Fargo should go to see it.

I did not know this was in the mall. Lots of memorabilia to enjoy looking at. Great video to watch in the old time bleacher seats. Worth your time for a look.

The museum included a lot of nice items from Maris' career. It is in a mall, so there is no charge and it is pretty small, but still worth a look to see if you are a baseball fan.

My sister suggested we visit this museum, and I was thinking, "Okay, it'll be a so-so experience but what have I got to lose but a half hour or so of my time?" Boy, was I wrong! This small, unassuming museum located in a side wing of the West Acres Mall pays homage to one of the greatest men who... More

Doesn't take more than 1/2 hour to watch the video and look at the memorabilia. Located right in the West Acres Mall, so it's convenient to shopping. Nicely done.
