A lot of old and new Pepsi products. Different cans,bottles from all over the world if you have one you can send it in and they might display it with your name and wherever it came from.

We did not remember Pepsi Co was founded in New Bern. Seeing the history plaque and sign was cool. It would be nice to have the store open on Sunday.

I expected this to be a Pepsi museum but it really was more like a Pepsi gift shop. They do have a cute soda shop where you can get a fountain Pepsi or float.

Great place to visit especially if Pepsi is part of your life. Nicely put together and in a great location to theTrent River and its parks. Worth the stop if you are in the New Bern area.

Great selection of the old original Pepsi plus their new forumlas. Lots of merchandise, selection of drinks. Lots of history as well. One problem: wouldn't take a hundred dollar bill for merch, so had to use credit card.

This place is a disappointment compared to the Coca-Cola place in Atlanta. There is nothing here but a store selling Pepsi products and a curio of the different Pepsi cans used in different places such as Japan, Thailand, etc

Surprised to find this while touring New Bern. What a little treat. See where your favorite cola got its start. You can go inside the pharmacy and enjoy a sip of Brads drink. That's the original name. Now the whole world knows it as Pepsi...More

Enjoyed the time there and the information they gave us. The Pepsi and popcorn was great. Would highly recommend it to all who visit New Bern

We stopped here to check out the soda fountain. I loved getting 50 cent Pepsi and seeing all the memorabilia. It is not much, and really is made fun by the knowledgeable workers.
