I missed the Buddy Holly Center on my last visit to Lubbock because I was in town on a Sunday and Monday. Last week, I made it a priority to visit. If you are a Buddy Holly fan, a visit to the center MUST be on your list when in Lubbock. I loved seeing Buddy's report cards, etc. It brought... More

Although I was only 9 when Buddy Holly died, I still remember the excitement of Buddy Holly and the Crickets appearing on Ed Sullivan and the releases of his latest songs. This museum brings back the memories and excitement and also tells the complete story of his life and music. Displays include pictures, photographs, records, guitars, personal belongings from Buddy's... More

If you love rock and roll and history you gotta stop by if your in Lubbock. Also, enjoyed the collection in the art gallery. To complete your visit go by the Holly Hop Soda Shop for a treat.

The gift shop was nice, but it was kind of frustrating that the museum was about to have free hours, but because we were 30 minutes early we had to pay. The museum... More
