Here is a well done small museum dedicated to the hunt for and ambush shooting deaths of the most famous outlaw couple and the law enforcement officers involved. Located in Gibsland Louisiana makes it... more »
Wow, was I surprised! Didn’t expect to feel many different emotions while walking through this place! It has a lot of stuff for such a small museum. Pick up a flyer of the poem written by Bonnie, help... more »
This museum is in an old smelly building. They have a nice documentary film to start you off. You are then on your own to walk through the exhibits. They have a strange fascination for the death photo... more »
B&C Ambush Museum is located dead center of Gibsland a very small town. You cant miss the museum unless your driving like Clyde Barrows. Only seen a few parking spots. There is a $7 per person sign, written in marker on the entrance door. Once you pay, there is a DVD the owner will play for you to watch and then wonder around the museum, looking at all the historic items. There are a few items that are here that do not fit in B&C Legend. The 2 cars are not the originals just props. Could do away with the fake blood. The articles and pictures are very informative on B&C
I was super excited to come and see this place because I watched the movies and read about the duo but once I got there it was really small. The museum had a lot of different items and the man there was extremely knowledgeable, but I do think that the entrance fee is a little high for having a lot of posters and replicas. It is very interesting though driving through the town because it is so small and when I went there, there was practically no one there so it was fun trying to picture what the town was like when Bonnie and Clyde were running around there. This place is definitely worth a visit, especially if you are intrigued by Bonnie and Clyde or nearby.
The Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum is full of many items, from replica graves of Bonnie and Clyde to blood stained shirt pieces. There is so much stuff (large and small) it limits the space you can walk through and makes you feel quite cramped. The owner is very nice and knowledgeable. When you enter the museum you are in the gift shop area and then you proceed into the museum. You may start by watching a couple different videos about Bonnie and Clyde and the ambush that ended their lives. There is a timeline of stories posted along the wall that brings you from their begins through the ambush. The museum, while it has some items from their lives, it seems to hold more items to do with their deaths, including autopsy photos/drawings. I would not recommend this museum for some children as they may get scared or not understand.
Well worth the drive and very nice people. Museum is comprehensive and extremely interesting.
It was pricey. There was alot off the same copies of copied pictures and copied newspaper clippings.
