Our favorite part was the video. But a fun small exhibit. If you are a music buff don't miss this one.

A great little museum, covering the all too short life of a music icon. The museum is situated in an interesting area, with loads of options for lunch.

The eye-catcher is the giant glasses at the front. The museum is small, just one room with all things of Buddy Holly and there is repeatedly shown a video about buddy's life in another small room. The rest room is very clean. The $ 5.00 is OK for a fans

My parents were in town so we decided to hit up the Buddy Holly Center. It was fun and very interesting. I enjoyed learning about Buddy Holly and his music.

If you are a fan of Buddy Holly and in Lubbock then you gotta go there! Some people travel from other Countries just to see this.

A must see museum if you are into rock n' roll. The Buddy Holly Center follows the short life the America's rock n' roll legend that forever changed music from big band to four guys, 3 guitars and a drum. Stop into the bookstore to buy memorabilia that you can take home and remember what music really sounds like.

I lived in Lubbock for 16 years and always enjoyed the museum especially if they had a musical event on.My son played there twice after attending guitar workshops there. This was back in about 2003.

This center is run by the City of Lubbock and is quite well-done with Buddy Holly memorabilia, Buddy Holly music and a complete time line of his short career.

Those of a certain age will remember the great hits of Buddy Holly & The Crickets. Any one interested in the evolution of rock and roll will enjoy this museum. Many of the artifacts come from the family, and you feel very close to knowing how Buddy grew up in Lubbock. We especially enjoyed seeing his Fender Stratocaster. As with... More

Were staying in Snyder and realized we were about 80 miles away so decided we had to make the journey to Lubbock. There is a lot of memorabilia, a museum and a small studio that repeatedly shown an informative film about the great man. His death came far too early.
