“If you are interested in the Civil War...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Take the time to visit. A very informative DVD on the Civil War battles in the area. Sit on the porch awhile, enjoy the breezes and the flags flying. If you're hungry before or after your visit, be sure to go to the City Cafe (just a short drive) for a great patty melt sandwich with out of this world onion rings. Thanks to the center staff for their recommendation !

“Great interpretive center - Get your tour map here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Stopped here on our way North from Florida. This made it worth our while to stay near Tupelo. The tour map made the interactive tour with our coach and auto in tow worth while. I do recommend this stop if you are a Civil War buff.

“Go here before you visit the battlefields”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Visited here Memorial Day weekend 2012. Great overview of the Civil War as well as the battles of Brices Crossroads and Tupelo. Make sure you visit all the exhibits and check out the movie. You'll walk away with an appreciation of the significance of both battles.

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.
