The National Park Service has an excellent Visitor Center, with an excellent film that puts the battle in context with the rest of the Civil War, as well as details of the battle itself and an interesting little museum. You need to start there first. Then there are at least two options. One is a self-led driving tour around the... More

We have been to many National Parks and Battlefields. Shiloh is among the best preserved of all the battlefields we have visited. The site is easy to navigate and, although the Visitor Center was under construction at the time of our visit, the staff was courteous and helpful. As a result of budget cuts, some interpretive signage could use attention... More

Shiloh Military Park was an great adventure. I had always wanted to visit, and had the opportunity in October 2014. We took the self-guided tour, which took about 2.5 hours. The video at the Visitors' center was excellent. I even bought a copy to use in my classroom. The video helped us to visualize the places on the tour. I... More

First you must watch the film, to better understand what you will see at the park, unless you have done a lot of research earlier. the driving tour of the park is 12 miles long and take 2 plus hours. note no restrooms on tour. The monuments and information tell of the hug sacrifices both sides made in this battle.... More

The people there are very welcoming and the park was extremely well maintained. The welcome center had a very informative video that have various storylines to help with understanding. The park was very well labeled and even a bald eagle nesting. A great visit, might be a little much for younger children (on the amount of casualties) Other than that... More

It was pretty much what I had expected. Uniforms, weapons, pictures & of course written history. It brought tears to my eyes To think of brother fighting brother & countryman against countryman!; however, it is a part of our history.

My husband and I love to visit Civil war memorials and parks. October was a perfect time of year to visit Shiloh. The weather allowed us to do some walking and enjoy reading the monuments and try to visualize the battle as it happened. The scope of the battle is overwhelming and we appreciated it even more after visiting the... More

Even if you aren't really a Civil War buff, this place us worth your time. The film at the visitors' center is a must. It carefully lays out the two day battle so that you walk away understanding what transpired here. Then when you drive the 20 stop trail of the battle, you can begin to understand the scope and...

If I recall correctly, I read a few years back that Shiloh, along with Gettysburg and Antietam, was one of the three best preserved Civil War battlefields. Having already visited the other two, I figured I would visit Shiloh or probably regret it later. The battlefield is heavily wooded, interspersed with very large open fields where much of the fighting... More

I brought my 8 yo cub scout here for a 2 mile hike. The weather was perfect and we had a fantastic time exploring the park. We ended up doing the auto tour and cometing the junior ranger book while there. Next time, we'll come on a reenactment weekend and bring our bikes! Loved it!
