The battle of Shiloh was fought over the railroad junction at Corinth. The visitors center at Corinth will give you insight into the battle and the big picture context of Shiloh. Well worth a visit.

I had no idea this place would be so nice and well done when we stopped in on our way to Shiloh. From a good film explaining the role of Corinth in the Civil War to excellent displays, this is a first rate place I would definitely include as part of the Shiloh experience.

We found this place because we found Shiloh National Military Park. Lots of history. Really like the bronze artifacts in the concrete walkway up to the building.

We went to the Interpretive Center at Corinth before visiting the military park at Shiloh. That helped us understand so much better the battles that took place in this area. The center is very well done with an informative movie and informational displays. The staff was helpful and friendly. The entrance was a bit confusing because one walks on a... More

Drove roughly 25 miles from Shiloh Battlefield to see what happened when the Confederacy left Shiloh. First of all instead of running a 50 yard pathway directly to the building they wound a pathway that ran probably 300 yards to get to the building. I complained to the officer in charge once I got inside but he said it was... More

We visited this venue early in the day when it first opened. The staff was very welcoming, let us in a few minutes early and let us know as soon as the film was ready. It was a very good introduction to the Civil War in the Cornith area. The film was good and the exhibits well presented. We also... More

I feel that I have finally learned why the war started and why it lasted so long. Also I feel I understand the process of the secession of the southern states and how the Confederate States of America came about. So many back then thought this war would only last a few weeks. I now have a better understanding of... More

I visited the Civil War Interpretive Center prior to my visit to Shiloh and learned a lot of new information about the Civil War History of the Corinth area. I grew up about 20 miles from Corinth and when I was in school, it was never emphasized how important Corinth was during the war.

Absolutely a can't miss. The movie is very informative and adds much to the museum and grounds you'll tour.
