Really nice building with great exhibits of Civil War information relevant to the area. Watch the short film to better understand what the city of Corinth went through. Its amazing. Lots of great interactive exhibits and a very friendly staff. They are in the process of replacing the carpeting, so there may be some minor inconvenience until it is done.... More

This visit was a good follow-up to the visit to the Shiloh battlefield. They make several references to the Corinth area and it's strategic value. Make sure you see the railroad "crossroads" too.

The museum was excellent. The displays were well done and the video moving. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the fountain/sculpture is really something to see.

My GPS took me here (it thought this was the Shiloh visitors' center). Glad it did! I did not know how much took place in Corinth and the big part it played in the Confederate aftermath of Shiloh. Give yourself at least an hour (or hour and a half if you watch the film). The only downside (maybe it was... More

This National Park Service facility is worth your time to visit when in the Corinth area. There is no charge for admission. Watch the movie and then tour the exhibits. Very well done center for a small facility.

Tom Parsons & his staff do their best to assist a visitor during their stay at Corinth. The museum is new and well worth the time spent learning history.

Corinth was a strategically important crossroads in the western theater of the war. While a battle of smaller scope was fought here the area is additionally interesting for what occurred during the non-battle years, and the significance of it in the larger scope of the conflict, as well as the Confederate staging point for the early war massive Battle of...

We accidentally spent the night in Corinth on our way to Shiloh and saw in our hotel book that there was a NPS just a mile away. We are huge fans of National Parks and decided to visit. It looks small and unassuming from the outside. It most certainly is not. There was an informative movie shown about the importance... More

This was better than I had ever hoped! The water display was so far above average that I will return to do it again! Never knew the importance of Corinth in the Civil War until now!
