    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 »

    We visited at the end of August 2017. The museum's star attraction is a reproduction of the car the pair were riding when ambushed about 8 miles south of town. I read a story about how this museum has...  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.

    Just a small building in town. Building wasn't open when we drove by. There are tours available. Check prices and time.
