It's small, but has some interesting displays. Don't miss Elton John's glasses on show there! Also a nice little gift shop. In the summer, they have events and music shows in the courtyard. Much more worth it to find out when those are held to...More

If you are a big Buddy Holly fan, visit. If you just really like an air conditioned place to hang out for a little while, visit. If you have nothing else to do and it's hot and you can afford to go, then visit here....More

Small but good and interesting. The film is well worth seeing. If you do the Slient Wings Museum it's half price so well worth it.

Hard to believe after going through this well-executed museum that Buddy Holly only had an 18-month career before his life ended in a plane crash. His impact on early rock-and-roll is still felt today. Worth a visit, particularly if you have music interests. Nice statue...More

Introductory movie was good & the rest of the display was organized well -- be sure to get the folded paper that tells you what you're looking at in each display case.

I took a grandson here this month. It was an interesting visit and we both learned things that we didn't know about Buddy Holly. Take time to watch the video. Hint - We got in for 1/2 price, by presenting a receipt from the Silent...More

I have wanted to visit ever since it opened and was not disappointed. If you are expecting a place where you can spend the day-this is not it. But for the price and a little bit more time than a standard Movie, it is a...More

As other reviewers have said, the exhibit hall is not that big, but is is full of Buddy Holly items. If you read all the information provided, I'd say it's about an hour. I also toured the temporary art exhibit down the hall... More
