  • 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 »

  • Neat and interesting are about it... While nothing is wrong with this museum it is lacking that professionally curated feel. It is in a historic locale and seems crammed in. Pricing for an unguided, entrance to the next room, was high. Felt unsatisfactory and uninteresting after a few moments.
  • Been wanting to come here for years.Got there Friday afternoon and stood in the lobby / gift shop for 30 minutes while the guy there was surfing the net. Finally got tired of waiting and left. He never acknowledged we were there until we were outside on the sidewalk. Said thanks for shopping without even looking up. I can understand why they are going broke. Sad deal, was looking forward to seeing it.
  • This is worth the stop! Also, don't forget to get directions to go see the actual ambush site (Historical Marker) on Hwy 154 outside of Gibsland.
  • Small, stuffy and over priced. We were told it was free..... Not really. You can go into the gift shop for free, but it's $7 for a self guided tour of a room. Not worth it.
  • So Chris Deloach, how much was your speeding ticket?? Obviously your upset after getting a ticket in this town, otherwise you wouldn't have commented on the local PD. Second... If you think Bonnie and Clyde were unarmed and "dindu nuffin", your a special kind of stupid aren't you... This Museum was well worth the trip and is highly recommended!!!!!
