well done museum and outdoor memorial, fun photo op in front or on top of a giant replica of his famous eyeglasses, nice gift shop, worth a stop if you are in the area!

this is a good stop to get out of the sun, the movie needs to be updates a little, it is from 1999, but the museum is very informative on the life of Buddy Holly

A large broze statue of Lubbock's own Buddy Holly is the main draw here. The walk is line with plaques of donors and musicians, all bringing back many memories. After you tour the musuem, comesit by the statue and think back. A nice little park area that has benches and shade trees, a good place for reflection. Drive down Crickets... More

Lubbock may be a flat, dusty, red-neck town, but some of the most talented and wonderful people grew up there. Buddy Holly, a musical legend known around the world, stands tall in the Texas Walk of Fame, a large impressive statue with his trademark glasses and guitar in hand. On the wall behind are names such as Bob Wills, Waylon... More

This is an outdoor display across the streeet from the Buddy Holly Center. The Buddy Holly Center is open certain hours. This exhibit is alway open but you won't learn much about Buddy from visting this display. There is a nice statue of him but there are many power lines in the background of any pictures that you take.

It's an amazing tribute to both Buddy and endless number of outstanding artistes from the West Texas Area. The statue is larger than life and the plaques are very classy. Its a great place to be and the whole Depot Area is a great place.

The statue is opposite the Buddy Holly Centre, easy to get to and great to see. The statue is bigger than life sized and a fitting tribute to an amazing musician.

This was one of the places we first took our NYC visitor. He had heard of Buddy Holly and has lots of his music. He could not believe all the history located in this one spot. We will definitely hear lots of comments when he returns to NYC. Thanks for the great experience.
