Touring Lubbock | The University Museum
We ran around Lubbock about a week ago and found ourselves touring our own city at the University Museum.
If you're unfamiliar with Lubbock, TX, it mostly exists because of the University.
It's about 5 hours from any other city in Texas-- except Amarillo, so there's a lot of old school history running through this town and lots of memorials to Buddy Holly and his glasses (he came from Lubbock and Lubbock won't let you forget it).
Sometimes I can't tell if people in this town like Buddy Holly or his glasses more...
So, this was one of the most random museums I've ever been in and I loved how unsure it was of what kind of museum it was supposed to be. There were paintings. Dinosaurs. Old cars. And creepy glass encasements of mannequins. Mannequins dressed in period pieces throughout history--- like, something you'd see in Night at the Museum.
Y'all, MANNEQUINS ARE NOT MY THING.
My body literally had a super chilled and creeped out reaction to the mannequins, I couldn't even walk down that hallway. There was also a wolf in a dark roped off corner of the museum that gave me the creepers. Every time I looked at it I swore it moved a little.
So basically NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM RUINED ME.
But I can't wait to go back to the University Museum cause weird places like that are too good to enjoy only once. :)
