Moon Rock, Apollo 13 Spacesuit

Field review by the editors.

Pearlington, Mississippi

Interactive exhibits and "educational stage shows" convey the history and mission of NASA. There's an outdoor display of rocket engines, and the rebuilt office of rocketmeister Wernher von Braun, complete with his TV set.

"Land the space shuttle!" "Go aboard the International Space Station!" "Take a walk under the sea!" Also here: a moon rock from Apollo 15, the Apollo 4 Command Module, and Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise's spacesuit; he was from Mississippi.

Admission price includes a 40-minute bus trip into the woods -- and through the "acoustical buffer zone" -- for an on-the-move tour of the Stennis Space Center, which is where NASA test-fires its rockets.
