Stolen tire.

Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum

This is an interesting little museum. I have always been fascinated by the Bonnie and Clyde story since seeing the Warren Beatty movie (that I found out was mostly fiction). No photography is allowed inside. The owner, L.J., was nice; he is a talker for sure! There is a video of several Bonnie and Clyde-related documentaries you can sit and watch as part of the price of admission. The museum has lots of documents, photos, and exhibits.

Now a competing "Bonnie and Clyde Museum" is open a few blocks south of the Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum." Didn't go into either one.

Ambush Museum entrance.

No photos are allowed inside. So I followed the rules. There are a lot of original pictures of the ambush, as well as video. You also get a personal preview of what to expect to see in the museum. The man who runs this place is the son of one of the law enforcement agents. Really an interesting place and worth a stop.

After you tour the museum ( which was the original cafe where Bonnie and Clyde picked up a sandwich, take a trip down the same road they did on that fateful day, and visit the site of the ambush.
