Mississippi Aviation Heritage Museum

Great aviation museum staffed by volunteers. Includes the Mississippi Aviation Hall of Fame. Did you know that four Apollo astronauts are from Mississippi? Lots of hands-on stuff for kids. Features the inspiring story of John C. Robinson, who overcame segregation to pursue his aviation dreams!
