A Moment in History
If you’re looking to dive into Lubbock’s military history, stop by the Silent Wings Museum, a legacy to World War II Glider Pilots, or the Vietnam Center and Archive, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive collection of information on the Vietnam War.
Those interested in ranching history may enjoy a visit to the National Ranching Heritage Center. Guests can ride back in time on the trolley tour or listen as Ranch Host Volunteers reenact early ranching life and give historic demonstrations.
Groups looking to host a production or show during their time in Lubbock can utilize the Cactus Theater. For inspiration, check out the details of our annual Sound of Texas: “A Tribute to Our Military” show put on each June.
Something for Everyone

A Taste of Lubbock
Get a taste for Lubbock’s culinary classics with a one-of-a-kind culinary experience! Hand of the Cook offers a variety of cooking classes partnered with local businesses and entrepreuners.
Lubbock is also home to many family-owned wineries. For a true sip of history, a tour and tasting at Texas’ second oldest winery, is top-shelf. At Llano Estacado Winery, have a glass that has been enjoyed by both George W. Bush and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, or reserve a private tour to learn each step of the winemaking process.
Create a Souvenir
