West Acres Mall & Roger Maris Museum


West Acres Mall & Roger Maris Museum

3902 13th Ave. S, Fargo, ND

Retail reigns in West Fargo, which is packed with every big-name, big-box store, plus more than 120 retailers and department stores at this popular shopping mall.
Among the surprises: A free Roger Maris Museum that’s a must-see for any baseball fans (look for it near the aquarium and Sears entrance into the mall). Visitors can sit in Yankee Stadium seats, watch a short movie, and check out the photos and awards for this famed athlete and Fargo native who hit 61 homeruns in 1961 for the New York Yankees, breaking the previous record of 60 homeruns set by Babe Ruth in 1927.

Also look for Recess West, a play area made with foam materials for toddlers and kids under 42 inches tall. Not far from the mall, you can also find the Scheel’s all-sports store that’s big enough to fit a 45-foot Ferris wheel inside of it.

10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday; noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
