5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Very informative staff and the items on display are enjoyable viewing. If you are a history buff and enjoy studying about the civil war, this is a must see place in northeast Mississippi.

“Part of Brice's Crossroads NBP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This visitor's center is just off US 45 south of Tupelo. The actual battlefield is a couple of miles away. This is a must stop for Civil War historians studying action in north Mississippi. The center gives a good overview of the Brice's Crossroads battle and its overall part of cavalry action in this part of the South. It is not as large as centers at Shiloh, Corinth and Vicksburg and does not have much to offer in the book shop but the park rangers are knowledgable and willing to answer questions. This center is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Make sure to stop here first to make your tour of the battlefield more enjoyable.

Very good information and dioramas. Both kids and adults will learn a lot here from the exhibits and the historians on hand.

“Small, but very professional and informative museum. Start battlefield tour here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

This visitor's center is the best place to learn about the Civil War battle of Brice's Crossroad's, some four miles to the west. The center has a 22-minute video, along with a diorama of the battle, uniforms, artifacts, a hands-on display for you to hear bugle calls, and an informative staff to help you learn.

Up to now, the only way to really learn about the battle here was to drive to the one-acre National Park Service preserved park, and read the information plaque. Thanks to many local citizens, the battlefield is now 1,400 acres in size, and this museum is the key to seeing it all.

In addition to what I have listed, the museum will provide you with a map showing not only the location of the NPS battlefield site, but of the additional historical markers and preserved fields that the NPS doesn't maintain. Most are directly adjacent to the NPS site.

Getting to the museum is easy. Get off U.S. 45 at the junction of Miss. 370, and follow the Visitor Center signs. You can see it from the junction. It's the building with several flag poles. But the museum is closed on Mondays. The cost is $3 adult, $2 children. There is also a nice bookstore and gift shop in the museum.
