In a Mall!

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.

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.

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

When in Fargo and you want to shop, head to West Acres. The Mall has stores you will find in every city, and then some really good finds. Like Stabo, a small store important to all the Scandinavians in our area. :) Not far down the mall you will come upon the Roger Maris display. While some shop, others (men,... More

This is a great place to visit even though it isn't very large. It won't take a great amount of time for the visit. Even though I have done a thorough visit in the past, every year when we get back there I still stop & see some of the exhibits. I was a huge Roger Maris fan & I... More

Do not make a special trip to see this small museum. It is stuck in a corner of the mall that is out of the way; when I walk pass it I never see anyone in the mini movie theater. I have stop once and once was too many times. Unless you are a Roger Maris fan it might be... More

I recently visited Fargo, and this is one of the places we visited. The display was formatted in an interesting way, and the video was well done. The mall where this is located is very nice as well.

We were amazed to find that Roger Maris came from the Fargo area. It was an impressive display of his awards and achievements and this is one ball player who should be in the Hall of Fame. Also if you have not seen the movie 61* I would highly recommend that you see it. It really helped put in context... More
