Roy Orbison Museum

Jack de Nijs

Fifty miles northeast of Pecos is Wink, TX, home of Roy Orbison. The tiny town (pop. 940) is in “the middle of nowhere, 500 miles from everywhere,” as Wink’s most beloved son once said. Come see photos, posters, guitar picks, and other memorabilia.


Just 50 miles northeast of Pecos is Wink, Texas, home of Roy Orbison. The tiny town (population 940) is definitely “the middle of nowhere, 500 miles from everywhere,” as Wink’s most beloved son once said.

The town's main draw is the Roy Orbison Museum, a single room of everything Orbison. You’ll find photographs, posters, guitar picks, and all sorts of memorabilia.

Given Wink’s remoteness, odds are you’ll have the museum to yourself. If you don't know all the Orbison lore, grab your Ray Bans and visit the museum.
