Lunar Lander. Apollo 13 Lunar Lander

We enjoyed the Lunar Lander photo op, and it wasn't far off the interstate.

Easy to get to off the interstate. Nice rest stop! Try to make time to go to the museum [in the Mississippi Welcome Center].

Moonwalk footprints. Apollo 13 Lunar Lander

Nice display and the kids love it. The lunar lander is set up high in the air, making it impossible for photo ops, but it's still worth seeing.

Lunar Lander. NASA Lunar Excursion Module

A 30-foot-tall replica of a Lunar Lander used as a trainer by the Apollo 13 astronauts. Apollo 13 astronaut and Mississippi native Fred Haise left space-boot prints and a signature in concrete at the base of the exhibit.

Might not be the best photo op during a lightning storm.
