If you're interested in Civil War history, Stones River provides an excellent visitors center with extensive grounds. We watched the 9 minute video, and then followed the trail through the park to marked sites. It's very moving.

The only way to compare a Battlefield is by other similar sites. Wonderful staff, with a huge amount of knowledge and personality, clean and well marked paths, and several neat sites to visit. The problem is a lack of land ( a problem I am sure they would like to change), a lesser known battle with a huge disparity in... More

I stopped by here just before closing. I was able to walk through the informational displays before I had to leave. The displays are newer and have become politically correct. There is not much of information on the battlefield. It is nothing like Vicksburg with its dozens and dozens of monuments and memorials or even Shiloh with its half a... More

Close to where the battlefield was. I was nice to realize what it was like for my relatives, who died there, fighting that great civil war. He was killed near Hazens Brigade monument.

My son loves history. when we stopped at the welcome center, they were fantastic . explained the details of each stop. finally after a couple of stops we found that we could call a number for each one on our cell phone and could listen to a recorded message.

This is very well put togetther. My daughter, wife and I visted this site between basketball games. We spent a total of about 45 minutes here. The visitors center was nice and had a good 9 minute movie about the Battle at Stones River. We also visited the original War Memorial that was just down the road about a quarter... More

I have been meaning to get to this battlefield for some time to allow my kids to do the Junior Ranger program here. This was a great little area. I wish we had more time so that we could have walked the trails. The visitor center has a good little museum that is interactive which is appealing to the kids.... More

The Battle of Murfreesboro a.k.a Stones River was one of the bloodiest battles fought on American soil. This National Military Park features a Visitors Center with a small museum, a movie telling about the battle, and three locations where important events transpired during the battle. There is also a national cemetery on the grounds.

We visited the site of the stone river battle grounds. We spent hours touring the visitors center and battle grounds. I would highly recommend this place even if you're not a civil war enthusiastic person.
