[Mallory Billings, 06/09/2017]

This museum originally displayed the 1934 V-8 death car replica created for the 1967 movie. After selling it to a museum in Washington DC, they replaced it with a more gore-gussied replica of the replica, with bigger bullet holes and bloody dummies.

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.
