Such a sweet tribute to a wonderful young man, family, community that placed Lubbock Texas on the map. The tour guide was wonderful. The memorabilia was beautifully presented. Thanks for keeping this young man’s contributions to music at the forefront of Lubbock’s tourism circle.

It is a small museum about the life of Buddy Holly. Lots of personal items, even the glasses he wore the night he died.
