What travelers are saying
- WE had a great time and learned a lot . Reminds easy we have it today. I think people of the era we see at the center worked hard and at times lived very hard. So much of the center is populated with genuine artifacts. Everyone was friendly.Written August 8, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Oh the things you can learn here! Fantastic homage to the great Buddy Holly. Makes you a little sad though. He was only on the music scene about 2 years and look at the impact he made. 22 years old when he died. Love the video showing those who were so influenced by him. JI’s house was a great exhibit. This is a great place to spend a rainy morning and then walk over to the Cast Iron Grill for great pie.Written June 8, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Large collection of windmills from early designs to ones still in production. The built-to-scale train model depicting Lubbock landmarks was a nice surprise that our kids also enjoyed. It’s interesting to learn of the connection between windmills and railroads. We also had fun doing a bit of seek and find on the impressively detailed mural on site! We didn’t join a tour but staff was friendly and informative.Written July 9, 2023
- This museum has a lot to offer to keep little children interested and entertained for a few hours. There are 3 floors of exhibits and it looks like they are upgrading some of their areas as well. I would recommend for younger children (less than 10 yrs), and not older teenagers as the science exhibits are aimed at younger kids. It was a good environment for them to run around and explore.Written February 17, 2022
- Took visitors from Washington State to TTU Museum and Planetarium. They were so impressed with dinosaurs, artifacts, TTU Centennial Display and so much more. Especially enjoyed the nature photographs. What a great way to spend the day. Glad to see the 'Tug of War' sculpture back on display!Written August 14, 2023
- I have visited a few wineries in Texas and this has been my favorite so far! It was so nice and lots of seating options. My friend, my daughter and I sat in a soft seating area and our server was so friendly and helpful. It was my daughter’s first visit to a winery and I told her the bar has been set high and many others can’t compare. I hope to visit again while she is still a student at Tech.Written April 27, 2023
- Saw Ian Moore last night at the Cactus Theater. Ian Moore is one Texas greatest guitarist, so we knew it would be a good show. It was great! Even Ian Moore commented on the energy, he was rocking. We'd been to the Cactus previously, but I don't remember the quality of the venue...the lights, smoke, and sound were great and added to the quality of the show. One down side which we noticed the last time we visited - no room to stand up and dance. I'd recommend they install some removable seats on the sides closest to the stage to remove for dance space for these type of events. It would significantly increase the vibe. Those who want to dance can dance, others can still enjoy the seats. Some folks went to the front to dance anyway, especially towards the end anyway, but it would be great throughout the show.Written July 24, 2023
- Park seems in a bit of disrepair. The prairie dogs have escaped their habitat and established themselves behind the softball fieldsWritten June 24, 2023
- 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.Written August 4, 2022
- Fun for the whole family here! Kids love it. We’ve attended tractor shows here and taken many visitors.Written July 11, 2022
- This wine is spectacular. After living in Texas for 20+ years, only in the last two years or so have I discovered any drinkable wine made here. Comanche has a good winery, as do Brownwood and Fort Davis, but I think McPherson's may be the best in the state; it could definitely hold its own with California wines. Forget the Hill Country--Lubbock/West Texas is where the good Texas wine lives.Written June 20, 2022
- Great neighborhood park. They had a fishing tournament going on… lots of people there. Big are with lots to do. People fishing, walking, running, riding bikes, playing frisbee….Written April 2, 2023
- This is an interesting museum and it is free. There are some wonderful displays that are very informative with tons of information. Even a great display explaining carbon dating. Not a great museum for kids as there is a lot of reading involved and minimal artifacts. There is also a 4 mile interpretive trail you can walk but on the day we visited it was quite windy so we skipped the walk.Written April 20, 2023
- This is one of the largest antique malls I have every visited and it is well organized! Definitely worth a stop and a few hours of wondering. I would return!!Written April 20, 2023
