“Not focused around the Civil War connection but interesting none the less”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

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 to the location. There is an amazing wood carving that upon reading the background it is unbelievable how it was created. Well worth it if you are in town but not sure I'd drive out of my way for it.

“A great look back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We enjoyed this museum. It has so much to see. It is an old place and they don't have one item displayed but hundreds. So many museum now spend a fortune to display an item. This is a smorgasboard of old relics.

“Important Civil War Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

As a part of the Shiloh National Historic Park in Tennessee, this southerly located section in Mississippi is sometimes over-looked. The Corinth Crossroads were a very strategic location for both the North and South forces. The Interpretive Center is outstanding.

“Good overview of local history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

Even better was the reduced rate as some of the rooms were closed due to the set up of the new Coca-Cola museum exhibits. (They are moving in due to flooding damaging their building.) The room was filled with simple, but interesting information on the area, how and why the railroad (the crossroads) was so important and some local people who went on to become famous in their time. I think the Coca-Cola displays will add nicely to this. The actual crossroad tracks are right outside, there are nice benches to sit on and a caboose you can check out too.
