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 photos of Bonnie & Clyde. There must be...More

Didn't know that much about the notorious duo but I know more now.. lots of memorabilia and photos some recreations of the bullet riddled car. I didn't know they were so young.. if you are in the area it's worth the $7. 00 admission..

Small museum with a lot of pics, newspaper articles, etc. Many things are duplicates shown in a few different areas, but still interesting. Some gory mannequins, but I'm sure not as gory as the actual bodies, etc. Not that I'd make a special trip, but...More

The markers are about 4 miles south of Gibsland. They are on the right side of the road as you go south.
