After visiting the Buddy Holly Center, this is an easy stroll across the street. It’s a beautiful sculpture of Buddy Holly as well as the Texas Wall of Fame. The area has a large beautiful grass field were they hold local events. Dogs are permitted here and there are bags for dog waste. We really didn’t recognize names on the wall, but it was chilly and windy that day and we didn’t spend tons of time studying it. It’s a very fitting memorial to people and very convenient; right off the freeway.

This is located right across the street from the Buddy Holly Center so be sure to visit when you visit the Center. The statue is a nice tribute and I loved all the names on the plaques in the Walk of Fame. A lot of my favorite musicians !

The museum was interesting but thought there would be more to discover. I guess I already knew more about Buddy than they did. They didn't allow picture taking, which is stupid! His statue is across the street and has a nice award center, with many famous plaques. It cost to get into the museum but the park with Buddy's statue is free.

It was informative but I thought a little pricey ($10/person) for what you saw. There was only one room with a few mementos as he only had a 18 month career basically. Much of it was taken up showing timelines. There is a separate room that has the bedroom furniture his parents bought him for graduation and dining room set they bought for a wedding present. If you aren't a music fan, it wouldn't be top on my to see list. I was pleased they stamped my receipt so that if I showed it at the Wind Power Museum you would get 50% off entrance there. We were there less than an hour, including the walk of fame across the road.

Lubbock is my hometown. Pleased that they continue to add to the memory of Buddy Holly. Hoping we can do the same for other ‘local’ treasures like Stubbs, the Flatlanders, the Maines family, + Terry and Jo Harvey Allen.

Small plaza great for a few pictures, out in front of Buddy Holly Museum. This is nice just a 5-10 minute stop. Park is free and open. Of course a trip to Lubbock requires a fast stop on 19th street to see

Many would recognize Buddy and his guitar, with signature glasses, but how many other names would you or your traveling companions recognize? For the middle school and high school orchestras that we brought to this special place, most kids recognized 1 - 5 names outside of Buddy Holly's. The rest were a fun treasure hunt to figure out what the name and musical legacy signifed. When you have a few minutes, stop by and enjoy!

The best part was the big "chalk board" entitled "Before I die..." it was covered with hopes and dreams of visitors to the Walk of Fame...not a single piece of unpleasant graffiti.

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.

Buddy Holly was such an influential talent and did so much before his untimely death at age 22. In a town that does not have much, they do have this one great claim to fame! Don't forget to visit the Buddy Holly Center across the street and take your picute with the giant pair of glasses!
