Mississippi Museum of Natural Science
This has got to be one of the best places in Mississippi.  We love it every time we go.  The kids earn money to save to go to this.  
The exhibits center around fauna and flora found in Mississippi.  They always have a visiting exhibit that is of extra interest.  The current exhibit is a hands-on about recycling and living green.
The kids love watching the fishes, turtles, snakes, and gators in the giant aquariums.  We love watching them watch.
Yesterday, we added a picnic and hike to our museum adventure.  The museum is located on one side of Le Fleur's Bluff State Park.  The Pearl River runs through the park and there is camping on the opposite side near a lake.
We walked about three miles through the woods.  It was probably the best day out we have had in a long time.
We even crossed paths with a green snake, in situ.  He seemed more real outside the museum.  
If you haven't been, go to the museum.  No disappointments here.
