This museum is in a mall, so I didn't expect much. My husband wanted to see it, so we went. As we were reading the exhibits, one that caught my eye was that Roger Maris wanted the museum to be a place where anyone could come at no cost. I thought that showed his character more than anything else. There's... More

Went to the mall and discovered a museum. Pretty cool to see all the awards and some other history. The movie was nice too.

This was lovely to visit. We are lifelong Yankee fans. The exhibit is beautifully done and free. The tribute to him is personal and professional. I loved the personal components. Class act! 61:)

My boys loved looking at the life of Roger Maris. They did a great job displaying items/stories of his life. They do have a video in a small room next to the display that gave a little background history of Roger Maris. However, due to the fact it is in the mall, you could not hear the video very well...

This is a display of some pictures and objects in a hallway of a shopping center. Only for those who LOVE baseball.

This isn't a museum, but rather a collection of window displays. If you are a baseball fan then by all means check it out. It's located in the Mall down a side section, so out of the way.

Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in 1961. This museum honors this honorable hero. It is simple and free. It is a walk down history. Baseball fans need to see this place.

A lovely tribute to Roger Maris in the middle of a mall. You can sit in old Yankee Stadium seats! There are videos to watch and awards to see. Convenient food court in the mall.

Asked about a museum in his honor, Roger Maris had a only a couple of requirements - that it be easily visible/accessible and there be no admission fee. And West Acres certainly fits the bill. The museum consists of several display cases of memorabilia and a small theatre showing film on a loop. So take a little time to peruse... More
