After visiting Shiloh Battlefield, we spent time at the Civil War Interpretive Center. We have visited many museums, visitor centers and battlefield and this Interpretive Center captures many moments in time, many stories, short informative sections that reveal a great deal of information. The stunning aspect are the blocks of stone outside in the section depicting a flow of water... More

Corinth, Mississippi was the crossroad of the Memphis and Charleston and the Mobile and Ohio Railroads. The Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center is a federally run museum that does an excellent job of explaining why Corinth was so important to the South in the Civil War and why the North wanted to control it and disrupt the ability of the...

Corinth, MS was a rail center, the object of the 1862 Shiloh Campaign. This interpretive center documents the city, the rails, the soldiers, the civilians and the slaves that were here. It does not glamorize, but provides an outstanding historical detail to the times. It documents the disease that infested civil war military camps. The movie is outstanding. There are... More

Great centre for the commemoration of the see-sawing Battles for Corinth in 1862. Super impressed with the painstaking work put into the displays, the intro film and the happy chappy on the front desk. A real credit to the National Parks Service. If you get the chance, go here - allow a couple of hours. 😊

We visited here before heading to Shiloh because we were staying in Corinth for the night. Spend an hour or two here first before heading north to the Shiloh military park in Tennessee. The movie at the visitor's center is excellent--don't miss it. This park is also run by the National Park Service and is free.

Corinth was of strategic importance in the Civil War as a major transportation route. The museum very accurately portrays this and there is so much artifacts to see. Combined with the proximity to Shiloh National Park and this is a must see for Civil War buffs.

The battles here, to disrupt/control the major East-West rail line were very important, and due to its proximity to the town, the Interpretive Center really explains what happened here and nearby, not only to the armies, but also to the residents. There is a good video to watch first and then spend time looking at the exhibits.

We Stayed in Corinth MS for the night, heading to Shiloh Battlefield the next morning, BUT, we saw an interpretive site in Corinth and decided to hit it at 8:00 when it opened. A VERY GOOD choice! What I thought was going to be a small local attraction is actually run byt the National Park Service and is a FANTASTIC... More

Very informative and interesting exhibit with films and recreated displays. Some original letters, artifacts such as weapons, and a desk that was used during the war and carried to multiple battles. Plan to spend a least 2 to 4 hours to see.
