“What a gift to the world of music”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

The museum is in a great place. It is easy to find and it is very informative on what Buddy Holly gave to the music world. He was way ahead of his time and it is too bad his career was so short. Don't miss the movie of his life. You also get free admission to the Silent Wings Museum when you visit this museum.

“If you like rock music....”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

This is kind of a must see if you like rock music. Buddy Holly was way ahead of his time. Most of the items were donated by Waylon Jennings. It is a very small museum, and I wish there was alot more to see and hear. But if you are in town, it is a pretty interesting music history lesson.
