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.

Enjoyed it very much. Well worth the time. The parking was a little difficult, but not too bad. Fun for the whole family.

Great time to spend with friends & family on a hot summer day!!! Great history & memorabilia. We had fun taking pictures throughout the museum, being silly with the photo opportunities & props. Enjoyed Dr. Pepper & Dr. Pepper floats at the end!!!

Really cool to see the history of Dr. Pepper. Be aware more reading and less interaction for the younger kiddos. They do have a exhibit that shows different uses and experiments with....Dr. Pepper, though we were time constrained and could not participate.

We went after going to the Silos. It was interesting to see where Dr Pepper was born. Lots to to see, and to get an old fashioned soda afterwards was cool.

Nostalgia and a bit of history is what awaits you here. A nice combination of animatronic recorded commentary, chronological displays and informative signage. The gift shop lacked, but the soda shop was fun. A nice place to stop.

Took family from out of town to visit this museum. They seemed to really enjoy it, but I found it lacking excitement. Couldn't find much that really interested me. Had a cool display with some unique old bottles. Saw a few old commercials that were funny. The water well was different. Otherwise, not much to see. Loved the sample at... More

We had a fun time exploring the Dr. Pepper Museum and learning about the creation of the soda. We love the new addition they have built where you can purchase a delicious Dr. Pepper float!

This is a great experience for children. There are hands-on exhibits, great Waco history, fun soda memorabilia, and you end with the soda counter and Dublin Dr. Pepper. What could be better on a hot TX day?!

The museum is very nicely exhibited. Three levels of the history of Dr Pepper Our favorite part was watching the commercials made since its inception. Brought back many wonderful memories for adults and kids laughing at the wardrobe of the 60-70-80's. Enjoyed by all age groups Soda Fountain on the main level really took you back. Delicious!!! Great souvenir shop... More
