The Stennis Space Center is NASA's testing ground for engines for their various space craft. The exhibits and bus tour are very interesting, and the cafe serves a small but made-to-order and reasonably priced tasty selection. More exhibits, and more interactivity, is needed, but as it is, the center is a worthwhile visit for a couple of hours.
