The Crossroads Museum is located in the old Railroad Depot at the intersection to two railroads, the Norfolk Southern and Kansas City Southern. Part of the depot is still used by the KCS. This Depot is very well maintained. The caboose outside looks almost like it be put on train today. Inside the museum boost a small collection of railroad... More

This is a museum of railroad and local history. All kinds of train memorabilia, Coca Cola product displays (there was a bottling plant in the area), and pictures and memorabilia of local favorite sons, one being Don Blassingame, the Cardinal baseball player. In back of the museum is a famous rail intersection. Corinth was the sight of where two rail... More

Great museum & town history of the rails & the town's famous citizens. Something neat to check out if you are ever in the area. Very friendly staff & prices aren't bad at all. The best part is going behind the building to see where the "X" marks the spot by the joining of the railroads.

If you are into railroad history, this is a place to go visit. It's just not about the Civil War era, but also the town history. Informative.

Unique displays with lots of interesting info relating to the local culture and history. There's even a full room dedicated to one of the local patrons. I'm not a museum buff but I really enjoyed this one.

Finally got around to visiting the Crossroads museum. The lady at the desk was warm in greeting when entering and asking me to wait a few moments to open the museum. It's not a large museum,but fitting for a small city. It starts at pre historic times to present. The main highlight of course is the railroad and how it... More

This museum is a small one that covers rail history in Corinth, some history of the town, and a small Coke museum in the back. There is also some memorabilia on famous people from Corinth. The lady at the front was very helpful about other sites to see in the surrounding area. There is a nominal fee. To be honest... More

We had to go to the Crossroads as part of our Shiloh immersion visit and glad we did! This little Museum, which also appears to house the Coke Museum was a good addition to the other two planned visits of the day: Shiloh and the Interpretative Center. The Crossroads Museum gave us context to the town and people of Corinth... More

Has some very interesting dioramas from the civil war era as well as some artifacts but it is not cetered around the significance of the location from a war perspective. You can see the crossroad from the museum if like me your interest is the civil war connection but as it is still an active railway you can't go out... More
