  • 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 »

  • Wonderful historical site. There is gore so emotionally sensitive children and adults may need to be aware. This is my kind of historical site, full of information and lots of artifacts. Thanks for the expansion and I hope the cafe is open the next time I go, awesome.
  • My husband and i really ejoyed learning more about Bonnie and Clyde. This is a laid back little rown with so much to offer.
  • 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
  • Car had mannequins with fake blood and plastic gummy blood stuck to the windows, kinda ruined the authenticity of it.... It was okay
  • 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.
