We came here to fill some time and ended up having a good time. The center is small, but chocked full of really interesting facts and memorabilia. If you have extra time, definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed the center. It was very well done considering his short life 😢 worth the time and money. It was interesting learning his influence on music.

A must see for Holly fans and people who are fans but don’t know it, by virtue of his songs covered by others and the tremendous influence he had on major bands like the Beatles and Stones. They should play his music more prominently and...More
