“Remembering 80 years since the law won”

The museum has so many great artifacts and clippings that if you're interested at all in Bonnie & Clyde or history of their times you will spend a couple of hours here. Boots (the curator) is a good old guy too and he's very knowledgeable and helpful. He will answer any question he can and he really knows his stuff (and he should, his father Ted Minton was one of the officers that hunted B&C and was present at the ambush). The museum is housed in the cafe where Bonnie and Clyde bought their last snack before the ambush.

Small, old-fashioned. 7 bucks a person, T-shirts are 20, no photographs. Lots of photos, great way to spend an hour. Walk across the street to the Gibsland Cafe for lunch after.

This wasn’t near as amazing as the museum a few doors down! The ambush museum is filled with replicas, not the real deal and kinda pricey when you can go to the free one that is filled with authentic Bonnie & Clyde history! Just make a donation so the real deal can stay around!

It’s ok! Just ok!! I was a little concern with the whole town especially this small museum shop! I did not feel safe at all. I give it only one star.

Not bad, not great. There used to be 2 museums however this is now the only one. They do have a replica of the car. They used to have the original but it is currently in Vegas. That being said, there are some original items and they do now allow you to take photos.

Totally worth the cost. Not for kids. Excellent displays and lots of photos. Good historical documentary on loop. Their car is on display with lots of personal effects. A little gruesome but some great history here.

Decent way to waste a little time. Wasn’t worth paying $8 per person (kids included). My son was quite surprised to see the actual car they were killed in. That was definitely different. There’s no other museum now. This seems to be the only one.

Great pit stop for about a hour. There are some graphic things in the back that small children should stay away from.
