My husband and I have visited twice and are impressed with this National Park. The exhibits are interesting and informative and the water feature is thought provoking. If I lived closer, this would be a place I would come to often just to walk and reflect. If you like driving through battlefields and stopping to read "what happened here" signs... More

There are no exhibits worth seeing. Shiloh is only about 20 miles away. Despite the historical significance of Corinth as a key railroad junction, all of the artifacts of any significance are housed at the Shiloh site. This center is entirely superfluous.

If you have to choose between Shiloh and Corinth, I would recommend that you go to Shiloh. However, if you have extra time, please also visit Corinth! The film showing the importance of Corinth as a railroad junction during the civil war was great and brought the battle at Shiloh into better focus. They could do a better job of... More

We went to the Interpretive Center to find the name of one of my relatives who fought for the North in the Civil War. They didn't have the information available as did Chicamauga, but I told them about my relative being in the 81st Ohio. They told me the 81st had an encampment at this sight. We were basically walking... More

This is a state of the art center that I would rate even better than Shiloh. It is very informative and my kids, no matter how old they get, want to go back again and again. The entire center had a great deal of thought put into it! The sidewalk leading up to it shows the difficulty that it takes... More

This is a place you do not want to miss if in Corinth area. The facilities are well laid out, and full of details. I have been several times and each time I learn something new. It gives insight into the daily lives, hardships of the soldiers on both sides and the families left behind. Very somber reminder of our... More

We were headed to the Shiloh National Military Park, when we took a wrong turn and ended up at the Interpretive Center. So glad we did this first! We watched a film about the importance of the railroad in the civil war. As you walk up to the building, there are bronze sculptures of military caps, horseshoes, backpacks, bayonets, swords...

This center gives a decent overview of the Civil War, the bronze sculptures on the walkway from the car park are amazing!

Very well laid out , and easy to follow the facts of the battle. Most impressed by the water sculpture which reveals the war battles in chronological order with the size of the corresponding stone relating to the number of casualties in each battle. Very simple,very informative.

We visited the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center specifically for the Grand Illumination. Our time was limited, and we never set foot inside the center itself, so this review is strictly of the Grand Illumination, which takes place just once a year as far as I can tell. The 12,000 luminaries are spread across the entire property, even into the... More
