My coworkers and I were in town for a conference at the local community college. We stopped by one afternoon to learn about some local history. Every one was very friendly. The best parts of the walk through were the Battle of Shiloh Theater and The Stream of American History. The whole facility is very clean and updated.

A very moving and extremely well laid out museum. This place combines the best of bringing history alive by using modern formats and technologies. Particularly interesting is the background movie played in a very comfortable theatre. We had no idea about Corinth's role in the Civil War and the vicious battles which occurred in and around this small town. You... More

Neat site for Civil War and/or History lovers! A lot of info to be had in the interpretive center along with on the grounds itself. Kept very clean & the staff is very friendly and happy to assist with any questions. The mini waterfall monument in the back is neat to check out and shows all the battles during the... More

A great compliment to the Shiloh battlefield nearby and full of information on Shiloh and the battle for Corinth. They have a fountain that blew me away with it's creativity and design. If you are in Corinth this museum is a must see. Shows the importance this city had during the civil war. People complain about tax dollars being wasted,... More

The sidewalk going up to the building - awesome concept. Make sure you look down while walking - you will see some surprises.

We came here before our trip to Shiloh. We are glad we did. Nice display and film on the history of area, before and after Shiloh battle. Good signage to Shiloh from here, even crossing State borders. Corinth was critical in the war's history and outcome. Went to the downtown train station and took pictures of the crossing of train...

After touring Shiloh National Military Park, this Interpretive Center should be your next stop. Very informative displays inside, along with 3 videos help to explain Corinth's role after the Battle at Shiloh. Be sure to go behind the Center and view the Courtyard. Pick up the brochure at the front desk and read it as you follow the Stream of... More

Stopped here as we headed through Corinth on the way to Shiloh. Very impressive center with great exhibits and films. We already knew a fair bit about Shiloh, but not as much about the ensuing conflicts around Corinth. There is lots of symbolism in and around the building, so be sure you get the various information sheets to better understand... More

This 10 year old interpretive center does a great job of explaining Corinth's involvement in the war. There is a terrific film that tells the story and the museum is filled with pictures, artifacts, and additional short films that reinforces the story. Outside there are reconstructed earthworks and a beautiful water based sculpture that interprets the American experience through water... More

Impressive building and grounds, excellent movies and historical information, helpful US Park Service guides. My family group knew about the Battle of Shiloh, which we had visited first, but learned a lot here about the subsequent battle in Corinth and horrible conditions for residents as well as troops. A great place to take the kids to learn about this important... More
