“stand on American Music stage”
The historic ballroom where big bands played and Buddy Holly gave his last concert is well-known throughout the country and the world. Extensive renovations; a wide variety of Big Band-era and Rock 'n' Roll mementos on the walls; and the famous cloud machine; which still operates. Dedicated in 2009 by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum as part of their Landmark series of sites.
Considered a "Landmark site" by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, this is where Buddy Holly played is last show. They've done a great job of restoring and maintaining the ballroom, and turned it into a great museum dedicated to Rock.
This was our second time through Clear Lake. The first time we went through, the ballroom was closed. It was great to be able to go inside this time. There is a ton of memorabilia to see inside. It was like being transported back in time. Everything has been restored and maintained beautifully. Our kids enjoyed 'dancing' on the dance floor while my husband and I read through a lot of interesting information. Definitely worth a stop in.
The Surf Ballroom and Museum is a must-visit destination for any music lover or history buff! The ballroom is beautifully restored and is a refreshing step back in time. While there's no admission fee, suggested donation is $5.
Beautiful place that still packs in the crowds with great concerts.
