    Free. Nice and informative exhibition on the Civil War. A video of 20 minutes helps to increase knowledge about the Civil War and the start of the slaves ' release

    Extremely well done, artistically​ inspiring and informative. Very cool architecture - building looks as if under siege. Reflecting pond in garden area unique and moving. Film was pretty good with mix of personal and political - and good attention paid to slavery and the contraband camp (ZERO mention in Shiloh film). Exhibits were well done but nothing spectacular. Overall a great museum that needs to be advertised more!!!

    Fantastic museum. Lots of exhibits and a movie about Corinth during the civil war. The museum is much larger than the one at Shiloh. Very helpful and knowledge rangers on duty. No charge to visit the museum. Highly recommend!

    Park rangers were very friendly and were a wealth of information. They answered every question and I asked some very in depth ones. Excellent films and gift shop as well.

    A terribly moving and beautiful experience. There are fascinating bas-reliefs of discarded soldiers' possessions along the walk to the front entrance. By the time we saw the bas-relief of running soldiers by the front door, I was crying.

    My wife and I traveled here to see some civil war artifacts and learn about the civil war more in detail. There was a severe lack of actual artifacts but an extreme amount of detail as far what went on in the area of Corinth during that time period. My main complaint was that it was ALL in wall plaque form, and you were forced to read about it all. I think the main draw for us was the actual architecture of the building itself and the water feature on the backside was extremely interesting and well thought out. Other than this, if you are looking for a museum experience this is not one, but they also do not claim that. It's a fun free adventure to have with kids or if you love to read about that time period but was not what I was expecting. We liked it, but it's a once you've seen it you've seen it kind of experience.
