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!

If you go to Tennessee to visit the Shiloh battlefield, you should not miss this National Park Service site at Corinth. It is about half an hour southwest of Shiloh. The exhibit area at Shiloh battlefield is sparse, but effective, however, the Corinth site has an extensive exhibit in several rooms, with displays, interactive areas, and some film that covers...

This is unlike most museums. It is very informative and interesting, especially when they have live demonstrations or rangers telling stories about people or events from the area. It is well worth the trip and doesn't take a long time to see what's there. You can spend as little as a few minutes to hours, because there is a library... More

I have passed through Corinth a number of times during the years, and, despite my interest in history and the Civil War, have not stopped knowing that there was only a small portion of the battlefield preserved. What a mistake! Returning home to West Tennessee from a visit to Shilo, we arrived at the Interpretive Center on a rainy day.... More

Very helpful staff and informative exhibit giving more prospective on the importance of Corinth as far as the railroad and the supply of goods for the confederacy. My wife's great great grandfather was killed at the battle of Shiloh and the staff accessed software and printed out pages of info on him, his pay records, when he enlisted, and the... More

We travel a lot and it is nice to say that we truly enjoy our Natonal Park here at home. The kids really are excited when they find the clothing, pots, ammo, etc that the troops "dropped" on their way through the park. They love the water feature and the Black School. Be sure and drive across town to the... More

This is a great place to visit in Corinth. It provides a great overview of the Civil War activities in the area. The staff person was so friendly and helpful as well! We also enjoyed the hours, it was the only place open we stopped at in Corinth on a Sunday morning, as we were traveling home.

We spent several hours here, talking to staff and watching a couple of very informative short movies. There were very few visitors that Sunday. It's a great place to stop and yo learn about this key geographic location during the Civil War. We highly recommend a stop here.

Easy access that is good for disabled people. Friendly staff, interesting exhibits. Tour this before or after Shiloh for the full experience, cause you will learn that the Battle at Shiloh was really ALL ABOUT Corinth (pronounced 'cor-inth' as in 'Corinthians') and it's strategic railroads - called 'The Crossroads of the Confederacy'.
