Starting with the sidewalk going to the museum, I could see that someone put a lot of care and thought into the museum. Periodically embedded in the sidewalk and long alongside it were small sculptures: A pocket knife, soldiers cup, part of a rifle, a belt buckle. This is indicative of the care and the detail that went into this... More

We stopped here during the start of a 30 day road trip as friend told us they had the cleanest bathrooms in Corinth. We got a whole lot more than what we expected, as while the museum lived up the clean restrooms statement, it offered considerably more in information about the Civil War the events leading to it, and events...

We made a special trip to the Center and were thrilled with what we saw. The Center is a smaller version of the Gettysburg Interpretive Center. Similar displays, detailed history, a main movie of the history of the battle, two shorter movies detailing parts of the battle. The displays were better than Shiloh's. A great place to get detailed history... More

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
