Friendly people and a free cup of coffee make this a welcoming place. BUT THERE'S MORE!!! A Lunar Module, Fred Haise's (Apollo 13) footprints, and more. Go to the INFINITY Space Center for more NASA artifacts. Everything is outside and FREE!

This was a nice place to visit to learn more about the Stennis Space Center. There were also many pamphlets and magazines that showed nearby attractions. We had a little picnic there as well.

We will stop in again. You need to stop in for a personal account of what is new here. We visited many places of interest that has not come back. Stairs to nowhere. Driveways with no houses.
