The Crossroads Museum and Historic Corinth Depot in downtown Corinth, Mississippi, offers visitors an array of subject matters of interest under one roof.
With permanent exhibits of all sizes, the museum tells the stories of Corinth history through professionally created displays. It’s also a train enthusiast’s dream come true: Visitors can enjoy up-close views of the famous crossroads from the safety of inside the museum, and an under-construction exhibit on the grounds will offer visitors rare conductor-level views of passing trains from a second-level viewing platform above a historic fire truck display.
In addition to railroad and Civil War history, the museum is home to thousands of artifacts detailing the city’s rich history in both cultural and industrial pursuits. Exhibits pay homage to aviation pioneer Roscoe Turner, baseball star Don Blasingame, NFL grant Jackie Simpson, the Rotary Club’s impact on the community and the Southern delicacy hot tamale. Adjacent to the depot, visitors can climb aboard a vintage train caboose and snap the perfect selfie in front of the bright red machine. Another great photo spot can be found in the front courtyard with a Civil War cannon used during the Battle of Shiloh.
Step into the Crossroads Museum and be transported back in time to experience the stories of those who have lived in and around Corinth and Alcorn County, Mississippi, over thousands of years.
