Even if you are not a native of Corinth you will enjoy the museum. Most local historical societies cater to just local citizens but Crossroads does a good job with a broader regional historical view. More seems to be happening on Saturdays but even during the weekdays you'll find interesting things to do.

Great collection of artifacts from Civil War since the crossroads is just behind the building. Lots of Coke-Cola items too.

If you are a civil war buff, make sure you see this and learn about the strategic value of this plot of land. I've never actually seen a railroad crossroad before coming here. The significance is addressed at length in the Shiloh battle presentation.

What would a Civil War history visit to Corinth be if the traveler didn't swing by and see the famous crossroads? There is an interpretive loop walk through the area - complete with wartime photo's. Worth the time to visit.

This is a good but not great museum. It's rather small and not up to the standards of several in the area, but nevertheless a good stop that adds to the Corinth/Shiloh experience.

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.
