We enjoyed the Buddy Holly Museum. We did not realize that his incredible career only lasted 18 months with his tragic death at such a young age. There was so much information about him that we learned. Highly recommend!

Buddy Holly had less then a two year career. I learned a lot of interesting things about him during the 18 minute movie. Then everything was repeated. Still a very worth while stop for any music lover.
