An in Town Surprise!
May 2021
The center was laid out nicely with part of the Robinett battlement as part of it. The grounds have burial sites for Confederate unknow soldiers, a nice water interpretive water fall that outlines the battles and cost of war to the states in men. The inside is filled with nice displays showing the Corinth Battle and three movies too. It is located in the Town of Corinth and it part of the Shiloh Military National Btlle Field Park that is a few miles of the road. This center would be a nice kick off to a visit in the area.

Start here if you visit Shiloh Battlefield
Mar 2021 • Solo
This visitor center has creative exhibits and storytelling systems. The architecture, sculptures, art, and exhibit panels tell them story of the Civil War and the battle of Corinth. The story about Corinth’s contraband camps is worth seeing. Take the time to drive across town to see where the camp was located.

Spend 90 min here, you'll not regret it
Sep 2020
This center makes the trip to Corinth worthwhile. Wonderful videos and exhibits, and helpful staff. If you're in the area, you need to visit this center. Then you also need to spend some time wandering around the town and visiting the sites.

Informative
Sep 2020
I like learning about the Civil war. This center was very informative. The film was worth the time to watch. I learned a lot. Very tiny gift shop and not a lot of items. I was upset at the hike to get from parking to the center. It was fairly steep. I was assured by the park ranger that it met ADA guidelines and had benches to people could rest. The hike is not great for people with arthritis. All in all a good visit

Unexpected Gem
Sep 2020
We stopped in on the recommendation of the the B&B owner that we stayed with - so very glad we did! Everyone who knows much at all about the Civil War has heard of Shiloh and the Siege of Corinth, but I was completely unaware of the Second Battle of Corinth and learned a great deal about it at this museum. Things that I thought looked silly on the website (scattered war items along the path up to the museum from the parking lot for example, were actually very interesting and impactful. I was really captivated by the fountain and the story it conveyed in its design. Highly recommend you take the time to stop in and learn!

Civil War Interpretive Center done right
Jul 2020
I took my 8-year-old daughter who had a wonderful time. It has a short movie about what happened in Corinth during the Civil War, which we discussed as we walked through the museum looking at the artifacts. The gift shop had anything we could possibly need. There is parking on site and of course it was free to visit. With COVID19 still a threat none of the interactive devices are available for use. We had a good time without them, so I can only imagine the experience to be heightened by their use.

More than just Corinth battle history
Jun 2020
The information presented in the center encompasses more than just the history of the Corinth siege itself. There is also a lot of information about the institution of slavery, and how Corinth played a part in ending slavery.

The courtyard fountain was very interesting, effectively depicting each battle and its human cost in casualties.

A Great Museum!
Jan 2020
What a great museum. We had very little free time on our trip, but we were staying in Corinth, so we spent some time here. Lots of parking available! I could have been there longer:). Lots to see, and great 'videos' to watch regarding the history of Corinth during the Civil War.
I need to add that there was NO charge to walk through this interesting place, however there is a donation box.

Very Interesting!
Feb 2019 • Family
An excellent, interesting, and affordable museum that is small enough that it doesn't overwhelm the visitor. Very well done!

A must see

A must if your into the civil war at all. 45 min video really shows you the battle and the human emotions within it. Ranger Mark was super helpful.
