Young and Old Love Visiting the John C. Stennis Space Center

The John C. Stennis Space Center sits 50 miles East of New Orleans and it’s an attraction that is fun for young and old. This Mississippi NASA site is great for geeky types, and for anyone who’s curious about the stars and space. Once tourists are done with the beaches and city life of Louisiana, they often head to the John C. Stennis Space Center to enjoy education and cool exhibits focused on what it’s like far away from Earth.

Book a Guided Tour of the Center

A different type of day trip, a visit to the John C. Stennis Space Center usually leaves travelers with valuable information and fun memories they didn’t expect to come home with. It can be a thrill to find out about our place in the universe, and to see how we are both of huge importance and small insignificance at the same time.  Access to the John C. Stennis Center is restricted, but some official tours like those offered at the neighboring INFINITY Science Visitor’s Center can get travelers past security.
