Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum
2419 Main Street
Features: For those with a taste for the American gangster lore of the 1920s, this is the place to see. It is dedicated to Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the rogue Romeo and Juliet of the Depression era, and located in the former Ma Canfield's Cafe where the pair got their last sandwich, then drove down the road into an ambush by lawmen. The museum has the bullet-riddled death car, a collection of photos, one of Clyde's Remington shotguns pulled from the car, some items of clothing, replicas of Bonnie and Clyde's tombstones set in a simulated graveyard, a large mural showing the death scene, and other icky stuff.
