My dad is really big into Civil War history, so he had this on his bucket list and it did not disappoint. We’ve been to Gettysburg together, and we were surprised how much Shiloh lived up to the Gettysburg experience. Definitely not as crowded, and...More

The park administration had to close the visitor center for renovation and a whole section of the park because a baby bald eagle fell. Still, the explorable part was great, and perfect for nature listening. The civil war trenches weren't much, but my son loved...More

Nice drive. Very clean, park staff friendly. Part of it was closed due to a baby eagle, but will come back for another visit to see all of it.

My daughter and I visited here and were thoroughly impressed! It was an educational eye opener!! We watched the 45 minute film to start and I would highly recommend that because it makes sense of everything else to follow! Since there were some rain storms...More

You can visit the main house and see the video and go on the car tour. The cemetery is so surreal. The river views are picturesque and the park guides are fantastic! They have music and demonstrations all the time. We go in the afternoon...More

If you know Civil War history you could take days . . . But realistically I'd guess about four hours. Make sure you visit the Visitors Center first. Watch the video as an overview.
