Roy Orbison Museum

A must for all Roy Orbison Fans. Stop by the City Hall next door and Dorothy or Nieta will be glad to pop by and open up the museum for you. Every June they have a Roy Orbison Festival with Beauty Queens, a parade and live music. Get your picture taken in Roy's Glasses!

By Texas standards, Wink is near Monahans Sandhills State Park in Monahan on Highway 20.
