It is a fun little addition to the mall, but that is all. Just a long trophy case on the wall with a small room playing a movie.

Lots of great memorabilia! Insight and info into a great underappreciated player. Sitting in old Yankee Stadium seats and watching the continuous video loop about Roger Maris is a must for any true baseball fan!

This is not really a museum but an area in a mall dedicated to a great baseball player. Roger Maris's various awards, uniforms, etc are displayed but the highlight is watching several videos about his life. I walked away with great respect for him & his accomplishments. He was a true sports hero.

This "museum" consists of memorabilia of Roger Maris displayed in what would be store windows in the Mall. The movie is great and does a good job telling about both the man and the baseball player. It seemed more like a display than a museum one expects to see.

Have been to Fargo many times and finally stopped. It was more window display than museum. Small area to watch a video with stadium seats. If you are huge Maris or Yankee fan its worth a special trip.

We greatly enjoyed this fine tribute to Fargo's great baseball hero, Roger Maris. It consists of a small theater with a few seats from the original Yankee Stadium where you can see a film about Maris's legendary 1961 season during which he hit 61 home runs. Outside are a series of windows opening on to a corridor of the mall... More

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. :)
