The American Wind Power Center in Lubbock, a museum that houses the world’s largest collection of windmills, is adding a new 33,000-sq.-ft. exhibit building to its property. Once completed, the new building will be able to host meetings, events and business seminars in its 120-seat classroom.
Construction is well underway on-site, and interior work has just begun on the project. Tanya Meadows, director of marketing at the center, says some of the new windmill exhibits will be completed as early as this fall, but a grand opening likely won’t take place until early 2016. The new facility will feature rare windmills (some that date back to the 1800s), wind-electric turbines, a G-scale train display with to-scale scenery and a mill stone collection.
The American Wind Power Center was founded in 1993. The original display building is open through construction and showcases many historic wind machines, telling the story from colonial times to the present. A number of windmills are on display outside as well.
From five award-winning wineries and live music rocking out almost every night to one-of-a-kind museums and unique meeting spaces, Lubbock is an ideal location to host your next meeting or event. Because of this wide variety of attractions and events, it’s no wonder that Lubbock is the 7th most visited Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in Texas, and visitors keep coming back for more. We believe it’s due to our easy access via car or plane as well as the abundance of cultural and historical sites and activities that keep our city bustling.
When it comes to hospitality, the Visit Lubbock Team delivers it in the smallest of details. From warm welcomes and a dedicated staff to one-of-a-kind venues and savory cuisine, we show our guests what the West Texas experience is all about.
