Our Visitors Center, the "Grain Elevator", located at exit 348 of Interstate 94 has bushels of information, maps, brochures as well as a gift shop. It is open year round so stop in and talk to our Visitor Center Travel Ambassadors. We provide free wifi, popcorn, and coffee for visitors...And the bathrooms are spick-and-span! The Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center is also home to the woodchipper from the movie 'FARGO.' Stop by and have your photo taken with the infamous woodchipper! We provide the (fake) leg and bomber hats to complete the photo op. Be sure to see the Celebrity Walk of Fame outside our visitors center with star signatures and hand & foot prints in cement.

I always drop in to visitor centres when I visit somewhere I have never been before, might get a discount on meals or drinks. Young lady present was most helpful and of course you have to have your picture taken next to the woodchipper.

We stopped at the visitors center to see what there was to do in the area before heading down the road. The ladies at the desk were very helpful and recommended different sites to see. Definitely worth the time spent here.

This is quite the visitors center- you can see an original signed script from the movie “Fargo” and the infamous “wood chipper”. Outside you can take the Fargo walk of fame and see hand and footprints for everyone from Tiny Tim to George W Bush....More

We stopped by the Visitor Center to view the wood chipper from the movie, Fargo which was great fun. The attendant approached us immediately and was very helpful and informative.

This a basically a very nice visitors center. Don't go expecting too much. The staff was very helpful in pointing out local tourist attractions, and they have a number of brochures you can take. Happy to have stopped by.

After reading the reviews, we thought this would be a must see. The ladies working in the center were very friendly and helpful, but the center it self was disappointing. The only plus was they had North Dakota T-shirts that were of fairly good quality...More

Upon arriving, we had a laugh over the wood chipper on display outside the center. We were even more amused by the actual chipper from the movie Fargo on display inside along with other movie memorabilia. The center staff is friendly, and the travel information...More
