  • 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.
  • The Concerts on The Patio are so nice. Having the food trucks and drink station set up are, also nice. Throughout the summer, they had awesome performers. Today was Patricia Vonne and Robert LaRoche. They were totally awesome and entertaining!! The Buddy Holly Center, itself, is amazing and informative, if you know little about Buddy Holly. Well worth attending.
