Was taking by grandkids to see some historical sights and found this. Local museum with great historical significant. The North South Railroad intersection this train station sits on is the actual crossroad that the Battle of Shiloh was all about. Cost very little to get in and had a lot of local and civil war history. Well worth a visit.... More

This museum was very small. Walked through on your own. interesting what they did have. one room was empty and appeared to need some work on the rooms themselves. They do have a small gift shop. one lady at the register was courteous.

Really enjoyed this little museum packed with Civil War history emphasizing the huge importance of the railroad crossroad, which is just outside! There's also some local depot/railroad memorabilia and the very interesting Coca-Cola Museum!

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
