This place is good to compliment a visit to Shiloh. I do recommend going to Shiloh first, otherwise you will feel you have half the story! Very clean facilities, well kept, and nice staff.

Came here with my dad about 5 years ago, I knew a lot about the area..but learned much more about the specific battles here and it was well presented. Go if you can.

I went to the Interpretive Center to learn about the Civil War and its effects on the Corinth and Shiloh area. I also went to learn about two of my ancestors who supposedly fought at Shiloh. The staff (especially Jim Minor) were very helpful in locating the sight on the battlefield where one of my ancestors had actually camped and... More

I stopped here on my vacation. I was over whelmed with the amount of education contained inside the walls of this building. From the artifacts to the videos and everything else on display. This places was amazing. It was like rewinding time and reliving some of the earliest days of the south... I look forward to visiting it again, next... More

We visit Corinth regularly and make it to the interpretive center almost every time. As younger kids, my children loved the "river" walk but now as early adults the history has come alive. The displays are always top notch, with enough information without being to much to read.

This is a very well done monument/interpretive centre. It is really worth a visit. Not for small children they would be bored easily with all the written material.

Really nice center. Great park service employees. The center was interesting with lots of real life sculptures depicting events. Even in the sidewalk were replicas of Civil War memorabilia (buttons, nap sacks, guns, bayonets etc). Beautiful reflecting pond.

Not much to see here as far as a battlefield experience, but the interpretive center is extremely well done for a Civil War history buff. Not big, but full of lots of interesting information which is presented in very thorough and objective fashion.

From the walkway to the film to the exhibits and the very building, this place has been done with detail in mind. Enjoyed every minute.
