“located at the Mississippi Welcome Center”

NASA's Lunar Lander exhibit is located at the Mississippi I-10 Welcome Center in Hancock County, Miss., just west of Bay St. Louis and 45 miles east of New Orleans on I-10 at Exit 2. The exhibit features 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 signature in concrete at the base of the exhibit.

Nice quick stop by next door is the NASA Infinity Center which included in your ticket is a 40 minute bus tour of the NASA engine test facility just miles away. This was awesome to see!

Hard to see at first, it’s right across from the bathrooms hidden behind some trees. It was cool to see but frustrating that it took so long for us to see it lol

If you are coming from Mobile, it's the exit for Waveland and NASA. My GPS and this app told me to go up to an exit 7 miles out of the way then turn around. Completely wrong directions so we missed it :(
