  • A wonderful tribute to one of the most influential names in popular music. My only suggestion is to offer better explanations for some of the items on display. Other than that, it's very well done.
  • quick visit for a restroom stop and photo op. Didn't see the actual museum. IN a nice area. Be sure and check out the statue across the road.
  • Huge fan! It was so cool to see Buddy's original glasses and guitars. All the stuff from his childhood was so interesting. The display room is small but impactful. I wish I could have taken a few photos in there but it was also nice to just be in the moment. I took selfies outside by the giant glasses. I also enjoyed the other art displays. Staffers in the gift shop were beyond nice and helpful. This is the kind of place that makes me proud to be a Texan. Anyone in the area should definitely stop here to enjoy, learn, and help preserve Buddy Holly's legacy for future generations.
  • If you like history/music this is a great place to go.Very interesting.
  • “Great place to visit” Went on tour of the drummer house, found out about of changes to story made in the movie. Loved finding out more about the real person
