Mounted on a set of stilts, this Lunar Lander trainer was the only one that the crew of Apollo 13 ever used as a Lander, since they never made it onto the moon.

Lunar Lander

Apparently this mock-up of the Lunar Module has been moved about 1,800 feet west, from in front of the Mississippi Welcome Center, and now sits in front of the Infinity Science Center.

The Lunar Lander was moved to this new spot earlier in 2019.

The Lunar Lander looks great and has spotlights for nighttime viewing. It's worth noting that it can be visited by both east- and west-bound travelers. Unlike most state Welcome Centers, the one with the Lunar Lander is at an actual exit. So no matter which direction you are traveling on the interstate, you can stop and gaze at the Lander.

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

Apollo 13 Lunar Lander

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