Got there at the start of the film which is about 45 minutes long. It does a great job of providing all the essentials of the battle. Highly recommend that you watch it. It runs every hour on the hour. Spent about 30 minutes with the exhibits and then did the 20 stop battlefield tour. This tour is laid out... More

One of the better Civil War sites among the many visited by this reviewer. The 45 minute video was very well edited. It featured film of a reenactment, complete with a cast of characters from Grant and Beauregard to two 16 year olds, one on each side. The National Cemetery is sobering. Pittsburg Landing is located behind the cemetery. The... More

This is a site from an historical battle....we are so fortunate to have our NPS! They are always very neat and clean....well staffed, and very friendly. The movie here was great and very informative. The one thing that bothers us Seniors, is that the crowd Is much older....where are the younger people? We were here after visiting several other NPS... More

Having enjoyed visits to other Civil War battlefields, it came as a surprise to me how unique the park service staff at Shiloh had made the presentation of Shiloh's history. The video presentation replicated the battle to such an extent that it was filmed at the same time of day as the actual events so that the conditions could be... More

This is the best experience, as are most of the National Park Service sites. Education, immaculate site, respectful, humbling. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this sacred place preserved for nation. One must do it all: the visitor center exhibits, film is tremendous, cemetery, and the battle site tours. It really is heart breaking, breath taking... More

We love to go through battlefields and walk through the cemeteries. We started with the film which is important to get your bearings of the land around you. The film told of the war from many different points of view. The Museum was also interesting, tons of artifacts to read about, listen too and just wonder about war. The cemetery... More

This is a great day trip for families with elementary school or older children. If you are wanting to really explore the battle in detail, this place could easily take several days to explore. This battlefield was about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the Nashville, TN area. Be advised that there is a fair amount of construction on US-64... More

*** TIP FOR VISITORS FROM NASHVILLE: *** From I-40, take the Highway 641-N exit (#126) South to Decaturville; Highway 100 West to 22-South to 69-South to Crump, and back to 22-South to the Park. We took Highway 22 south from I-40 (Exit 108) as recommended by Google, Apple, and AAA maps, and the other way was much faster and more... More

While visiting Tennessee, my husband and I decided to visit Shiloh. It's a very educational place to visit. The museum is very nice. We did the driving tour, there are many monuments to see. I would allow yourself a couple of hours to complete the driving tour, if you like to get out and look around. God Bless America!
