We planned on spending up to four hours here and easily finished in one and a half. Boys ages 15 and 12 finished in thirty minutes....and they live Civil War history. The Park Rangers were a great help suggesting a private tour guide for our next day visit to Shiloh. Gave us a list of around eight guides to call.... More

One of the best laid out museums and national park sites. Movie was awesome. The fortifications outside were really cool and the exhibits to all of the actions that's happened around the area were outstanding one of the best sites I have been to.

Once we visited Shiloh - which I hadn't thought I would appreciate - I insisted we also drive down to Corinth. It's about 22 miles and well worth the extra time. The Center is very informative, beautiful and a peaceful setting for the telling of a disastrous time in our Country's history. National Parks have done an amazing job on... More

After visiting Shiloh National Battlefield, the history lesson is not complete until you visit Corinth, and this visitor center and grounds. .Very well done with a informative movie video about the importance of Corinth to both sides in the Civil War. Check out the inscription on the cannon in the visitor center. Well worth the visit and recommended.

Worth the stop if you are in the area. Great exhibits and arrangements. The sidewalk leading up the the main building has artifacts in the concrete, really unique. There is a video to watch, which is put together well. Behind the building in a courtyard is an interesting arrangement of stones in water which depict varies battles. Friendly and informative...

The museum is just a short 5 min drive e off the highway. I loved the museum, there are many artifacts to see and enjoy. The tour is self guided and there is a historical video every half hour.

It is a small treasure of a museum in Corinth. I found it to be very interesting and well displayed. I enjoyed learning about the part that Corinth played in the Civil War or War Between the States, depending on where you are coming from. Visitors to our area would enjoy this interpretive center very much if they enjoy history.

This is the best place to start a trip to the Shiloh battlefield - better than the dated and more heavily used center at the battlefield itself. The exhibits are interesting and well presented. It also does a good job of describing how the war impacted Corinth. A nice touch are the bronze replicas of artifacts - weapons, uniform parts,... More

Six of us visited - three adults and three young boys. It was an excellent experience for all. The film was extremely well done and gave you a good sense of the battle itself. I highly recommend a stop here.
