This is a great attraction, free to enter, but donation box if you want to. We did. We saw three films of the battle of Corinth and they were interesting and informative. There were children in there who were learning about the civil war and each of them were awarded certificates and badges. It was really good. The monument outside... More

In planning our trip south to visit Civil War and other historical spots, we had no idea about what Corinth, MS had to offer. My husband has read and studied the Civil War for a lifetime, and if I hadn't seen other mentions of the Corinth Interpretive Center on Trip Advisor, we would have missed this. We had visited Shiloh... More

We enjoyed the Civil War attractions at Corinth. The Interpretive Center perfectly complimented our visit to Shiloh. There are 3 videos as part of the exhibit. It's worth it to sit through those to get a good sense of what transpired at Corinth and surrounding areas.

The Interpretive Center is a great example of how a town and its leadership working together can do great things. Artistry and history are combined to make a beautiful, interesting and informative attraction. The rangers who work there are very helpful and also 'star' in the short film that is shown in the theatre. Make sure to ask them if... More

The role of Corinth is imperative in understanding the Civil War. Being there, walking the crossroads and the local museum was great, as obviously was Shiloh itself. But this Interpretive Center was the big surprise on our trip. The quality of the video as has been referenced by other reviewers is nothing short of stellar. Moving, gripping, contextualizing, heartrendering, grounding... More

Unspoiled look at the civil war events in the Corinth area. Better than the Shiloh center but Shiloh park is great.

We were on our way to visit the Shiloh Battlefield from Starkville, MS and decided to make the detour to see what the Center had to offer. The facility is well kept and all the exhibits are worthy of seeing. The short video is packed with good information and the information here only added to the enjoyment of our Shiloh... More
