Overview
More
A museum dedicated to the nation's oldest major soft drink - Dr Pepper! We offer three floors of exhibits featuring information about many different soft drinks, as well as a carefully curated selection of our massive soft drink memorabilia collection. Exhibits change regularly! You can visit our soda fountain and gift shop any time without paying admission. Photo ops outside the Museum include a Dr Pepper Green 1940s delivery truck, one of three original neon signs from the Mockingbird Plant in Dallas, and a hand-painted advertising sign original to the site. Of course the front of the Museum building itself is visitors' favorite photo location. We are a two block walk from Magnolia Market and the famous silos, and about half a mile from the newest restaurants including Torchy's Tacos and In-N-Out Burger.

Unless you are a hard core DP fan I would avoid this attraction. Not worth the money you spend. It would be better for families but for us it wasn't exciting.

This is my favorite soda so we had to spend a couple of hours here. They have a kids section at the end of the tour so there's something for the entire family here. Enjoy an old school Dr Pepper at the end as well.

I never knew Dr Pepper museum existed until we decided to visit Waco. A great museum with tons of memorabilia on soft drinks. Very informative. Snack bar next door is a good idea. Ice cream was good.

No. It is in a separate building, which you can access by going into the courtyard where the picnic tables are and turning right instead of left.
