  • Read about this museum and just had to see it. Bonnie and Clyde had a terrible reputation and made history in their own way. The owner is a walking text book about their lives. The museum is filled wi...  more »
  • Small museum with a lot of pics, newspaper articles, etc. Many things are duplicates shown in a few different areas, but still interesting. Some gory mannequins, but I'm sure not as gory as the actual...  more »
  • Went here with 12 & 9 year old children. Had a chance to talk to the owner and he had done extensive research on Bonnie and Clyde and had some personal family experiences relating to them. He was an i...  more »
  • It's a very cool place. Spend a few minutes talking to the owner. He has so much knowledge to share . Well worth the time..
  • Cute town and very interesting.. It was not busy for us, we had a blast! Learned some new things we didn't know and visited where they got ambushed... The replica car looks almost like the original one.. (Good job guys)
  • We drove a guest from Panama City Beach that wanted to see it. Left independence La. took about 4.5 hours to get there. I agree with the other postings. Stuffy overcrowded no rhym or reason to set up of news paper articles. Could do away with dummies on tables. Original car was not there. Quite morbid for me however our friend got a kick out of it. Was told they have a parade and festival for the two. Yikes!!! Then drove to ambush site. Again in agreeance with others, Marker shot up pieces chipped away graffiti I guess just to say you saw it was with 2 stars
  • Kind of bloody but considering how they died I guess thats fair to say. Was kind of small and had a lot going on.
  • Left at 9:00 a.m. Sunday morning, January 29, 2017 to visit the museum from Carencro, LA. It took us about 3 1/2 hours to get there. Stopped a few times to stretch and use the restroom. Drove through desolate areas, piney woods, curving roads. Finally got there. Gibsland looked like a ghost town. Entered the museum... It was very crowded. This was the last place Clyde Barrow frequented before they were ambushed. It was a cafe where he got sandwiches. In my opinion, the owners should have kept it a cafe where visitors could have got a bite to eat. Kept it original. Too many newspaper articles on the wall...didn't like the two dummy bodies on stretchers.. Original car was not there but replica did look real. We did learn a few things but it could have been better! Also visited marker where they were big deal! All in all, it was an experience!
