Very enjoyable experience. The museum presents memorabilia and history in a pleasant environment. Plenty of room and time to linger and revisit stations. It's a great tribute to Buddy Holly, the Crickets, and many other musicians from the era and Texas.

So Amazing! I loved it! Been her 7 yrs. Came here from Florida. Have always wanted to see it! My mother would dance to him when I was growing up. My mother passed last year & I had to go see for myself! It was what I expected & more! Thank you Gene!

Enjoyable place to go if you appreciate history of Buddy Holly. Being his nephew it is nice to finally see that there are some things in his honor in Lubbock, after his music wasn't wholly accepted very well during his short lifetime... After all, even Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Carl Perkins, on that first time they were all together at the Cotton Club, were directly introduced to Lubbock itself after their show, which in the very least, likely helped the economy of the city at that time on to even present day.

This was a wonderful place to visit. While growing up to Buddy Holly songs, this center made me more aware of his entire life. They tell his life story brilliantly. Exhibits are creative and memorable. Great learning that Elvis' music had a dramatic impact on Buddy. It was fascinating learning the influence he had on the the Paul and John of The Beatles, Elton John and others.

This is a great music and history venue. A new music venue is being built and will be open soon. It might give Branson, Missouri a run for it's money! Hey, competition is a good thing! Only time will tell. Thanks
