  • I agree with Charles K.'s review from 2016. The only thing I would add is that the day we were there, there was such a strong gasoline smell in the building we couldn't stay very long. I don't know if...  more »
  • This museum is very cool, tells all about the story of Bonnie and Clyde, has lots of pictures of the time, until their clothes are there and more, I'm not going to tell you stay curious and go there to meet, who is a fan of the duo that went down in history this museum is sensational, worth knowing,

  • 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 »
  • 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.
