Not your typical museum. There's no charge and is part of the West Acres Shopping Mall. In addition to the exhibits, you can sit in some vintage seats and watch a film about Maris. Although gone, Roger will not be forgotten.

This is a nice place for the guys to go while you do your shopping. It has seats and is right by the bathroom. The guys will enjoy the short clip and keepsakes to look at.

It was a small museum in the mall. It had a tiny video room that you could watch the story of Roger Maris. I wish it had a bigger space with more stuff. Overall, it was a nice stop in town.

We didn't see any souvenirs for sale, which is a shame. This is a great tribute to Maris - especially the film - but the museum deserves a larger space and a little souvenir shop.
