The Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public. The vision of the Buddy Holly Center is to discover art through music by celebrating legacy, culture and community. 

Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock's most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.

The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. The Plaza is open to the public dawn to dusk, year round. The West Texas Walk of Fame, and its induction process, are a project of Civic Lubbock, Inc

The Buddy Holly Center is now a drop off location for
Toys For Tots Donation Drive

The Buddy Holly Center and Silent Wings Museum are proud to participate in the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots toy drive this holiday season. 

Both museums will be accepting toy donations to benefit local children Monday, November 20, through Wednesday, December 13. Guests who bring a new, unwrapped toy for donation will receive one free admission to either municipal museum for each toy they donate.  The Buddy Holly Center is located at 1801 Crickets Ave. and The Silent Wings Museum is located at 6202 N. I-27 in Lubbock’s old airport terminal.

The toy drive is a wonderful way to make a child’s Christmas memorable.  All toys will be given to local children in need this holiday season. Toys for Tots, which began in 1947, aims to deliver a message of hope to those in need, through a shiny new toy.
