We had an excellent visit to the Civil War Interpretive Center. It is well done. The movies and displays takes you through the battles and effects of the war on the soldiers and the people of Corinth. We walked out of the center very emotional. The water sculpture at the center was also impressive. As we were getting into our... More

We toured all the sites in that part of the country looking for information on a specific Union Infantry Company from Wisconsin. Here, at this outstanding library are kept records of each unit and descriptions of the battles in which they fought. We were allowed to sit in the enclosed glass library and read the passages that pertained to our... More

This National Park Service site is a treasure. The entry is peppered with bronze bed rolls and a stunning relief of soldiers marching. The building contains artifacts and well presented film presentations placing the site in the broader context of the Civil War. What really set this site apart for us was the water feature court yard where the war... More

This is a small center but very information and well done. Very beautiful. Interesting art piece from the moment you leave your car that sets the tone for the rest of your tour inside the building. Bronze pieces embedded in and along the sidewalk as you approach the building are very well done. Be sure to check out the movie.

A very educational and informative center. Brings the civil war history of the crossroads to all who visit. Reproduction gear and actual period uniform on display. Interactive exhibits and wonderful film explaining events of the era. A great portion of history revealed and excellent bronze sculptures, fortification explained. Great stop to make before you visit Shiloh National Military Park.

Excellent stop in the National Park system! Rangers are knowledgeable and this helps complete the Shiloh experience.

We were in the area to visit the Shiloh Battlefield and really didn't know anything about Corinth. We wound up in the town because we found a good B&B (The Generals' Quarters) and then learned more about Corinth. The Interpretive Center is excellent - very good film, well organized exhibits and helpful staff. Corinth played an important role and it... More

This site is part of the National Park Service's Shiloh Military Park. It should be given it own separate, stand-along status. The staff is very welcoming and is eager to assist you in learning about Corinth and the role it played in the Western Civil War. This was the second visit in seven years. The first time we came to... More

One of the best museums. Beautifully organized. A zig zag path leads you up to the museum from the parking lot. What is so fascinating about this pathway are all the embedded replica articles and other Civil War replica artifacts lying in the grass along side. There are 3 video rooms and several rooms with pickup phones which further describe... More

Cute little place. I was hoping their was more to the battle field around town but there wasn't. On the other hand this was a great place to learn about the battle. They had a great video explaining it. The place was nicely laid out and very enjoyable to view.
