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...More

This was a very nice little museum in the mall. It was free. A nice tribute to the true homerun king. Lots of memorabilia and video footage. A nice thing to check out.

It's in a mall, but it is well done. Glassed cases. Has both MVP awards there plus other items. Sat in the bleachers and watched the movie clip. I thought it was well done. It's free. Nice tribute I think.

Roger Maris wanted any museum, that was going to be in his honor, to be somewhere where it would be available to everyone, and free. What better place than the hallway of a shopping mall? I didn't realize that was the location until we were...More

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.
