The museum was great, a fantastic experience for any Roy Orbison fan. Thank you to Edith and Betty for taking the time to open the museum for us and provide a wealth of knowledge on Roy and his childhood town! Will hopefully come back for the Roy Orbison festival in the future. Stephanie and Tyson

My trip west in Texas was a mini-“pilgrimage” to visit the Roy Orbison Museum in Wink (as well as the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock). While traveling state highway 115, you could easily miss Wink if you blink! While its population is now only some 940, it was once a booming oil city in the heart of oil country with... More

The museum is a tribute by his hometown (where he went thru school) and each year they host the Roy Orbison Music Festival. Many legends... More

In September 2012 we visited Wink, just for the museum of Roy Orbison. We knew about it because of a Dutch television program 15 years ago (we still remembered because we love the songs of Roy), so when we were in west-Texas, we drove to Wink just for this little museum. Wink is a very small village, but it gave... More
