*** 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!

I've always wanted to tour the Shiloh NMP, so I took a detour on my way back to TX from KY. It was December 28 and I practically had the park to myself. The map was excellent and the signage that describes troop and artillery placement create a very clear picture as to the ebb and flow of the battle.... More

Everyone should embrace their National history. This park offers so many highlights. They explain all the combat and military moves and offer a lot space for you to get out and walk through one of America's most beautiful National Parks and states. The Rangers were very helpful and bathrooms were clean. I highly recommend this destination.

Shiloh is a lovely Park, full of learning experiences for young and old alike. There are plenty of landmarks, statues, and cannons on display. If you're interested in the Civil War , this is the place to be. They even have reenactments of the different battles once or twice a year. Very educational, indeed!

No one will ever fully comprehend the terribleness of what happened at Shiloh or its part in the 600,000 lives lost in the War Between the States. But, the hallowed grounds of Shiloh host the ghostly memories of what President Lincoln's address so aptly summed up for those who gave the last full measure of devotion. It is all still... More

We used local guide Larry Deberry to take our family through Shiloh. Mr. Deberry kept our children entertained during the 2 hour tour. We hit all the highlights of the park, along some personal favorites of Mr. Deberry. I would strongly encourage a visit to the park include having a personal guide.

The park is huge. We only had a few hours but one could easily spend days there. The place is quiet and beautiful. I recommend starting with the visitor's center and watching the film first. It will give meaning to the rest of the park. The visitor's center was excellent. The driving tour was very good. I wish we had... More

Having grown up in the area, SNMP was something that just happened to be nearby. And being all about our national history, I never really appreciated history until I had some. With that being said, SNMP is a place that displays a war where brother fought against brother and the passion was off the chart for victory. History that is... More

After living in Tennessee for 20+ years, we finally visited Shiloh National Military Park. We regret waiting so long. The park is beautiful and peaceful, the antithesis of the battle it commemorates. The movie at the visitor center is a must see start to your visit. It will lay the foundation for driving around the park. The movie is very... More
