Owner description: The legendary baseball player and Fargo's hometown hero is honored with a 72-foot long glassed-in exhibit at the West Acres Shopping Mall, tracing all aspects of his career, including major awards, uniforms and some of the home run balls from 1961, the year he broke Babe Ruth's record with 61 home runs.

Were driving a long haul from Lake Itasca in Minnesota to Medora, ND, and stopped in Fargo to let the kids stretch. Our stop of choice was the Roger Maris Museum.

Before you go, this is a mall display. Seriously. When the town asked Roger Maris about opening a museum about him, he told them he was okay with it, as long as it was somewhere free where people could see it. Hence, the Mall (but with good reason!).

For the baseball fan, this is a cool 10-15 minutes. Uniform shirts, a short movie, and several of the homerun balls from Roger Maris's 61* record breaking homerun reason.

Perfect length for a stop, kids back in the car, and we're off and driving to our next stop (world's biggest bison).

Fun seeing all of the interesting awards won by a home town hero. If you are in town and have any interest in baseball, it is a must see.

If you are in the mall you should take five minutes to check out this museum. Sitting in the dimly lit room on the old stadium chairs is like a step back in time. Even if you aren't a huge fan you can still find some appreciation in this museum.

No Charge! As my man is a life-long NYY fan, we actually went there to see the Roger Maris (born in Fargo) museum. Enter at the small entrance next to the bus stop with a large M on the door. It consists of a well-maintained store-front window display of precious memorabilia, crowned with a row of 61 banners with dates (if a fan of the man, you understand). A small theater room holds posters, pictures and a few original NYY Stadium seats to use while viewing a documentary film. Only one thing I would suggest: I wanted a picture that included the row of banners and the oval-hanging sign - the spot lights on the sign prevent a picture without light reflection washing out the sign from every angle.
West Acres Shopping Center: about a mile away. Huge major stores and lots of mani-pedi walk-in spots. We were there for another reason.

If you're at the mall, this is definitely worth checking out. He is a hometown hero and a star of the MLB.
