The Bonnie & Clyde Ambush Museum recognized as No. 1 attraction by La. Office of Tourism

By Paige Nash 

Last year the Louisiana Office of Tourism began a new “passport” program and according to recent reports the Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum have received more visits than any other “passport” site. 

This new program gives visitors a chance to win prizes by visiting places of interest in Louisiana including, state parks, breweries and their largest and most active film trail. This film trail highlights movie locations across the state. 

“We are very excited and appreciative,” said Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum owner Perry Carver. “We are one of the biggest draws in Louisiana per history and the paranormal.”

When visiting the museum you will be able to sign up or check in at this “passport” site by scanning a QR code on a poster displayed at the location and by doing so the visitor will win points. After logging in at certain destinations and at certain levels the Louisiana Office of Tourism will award prizes. The more sites they visit, the more prizes they win. 

“Bienville Parish is where the crime spree of Bonnie & Clyde ended thanks to Sheriff Henderson Jordan and Deputy Prentis Oakley,” said Carver. 

The museum features displays of authentic and verified history of the duo and other outlaws from the 1930s. 

The Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum has also been spotlighted on various television series including American Pickers, Ghost Legends and Louisiana Riders. They will be featured on Duck Dynasty Family Treasures in the show’s upcoming season. November 3-5 the museum will be hosting nightly ghost hunts featuring psychic readings and past life regression hypnosis by Raven Paranormal Events. Tickets will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.
