Overview

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.

Being a big fan of Dr. Pepper, I was expecting a lot. This museum was a timeline on the walls with period bottles & drink machines scattered through. I was really disappointed by the soda fountain & gift shop.

We visited with 3 boys ages 7, 10 & 13. It was interesting to look at all the stuff, even though we didn't really read all the stuff there was to read. The soda fountain was cool, and the ice cream was delicious!

The museum had fun facts about Dr. pepper and recorded audio you could listen to. This is a fun place to go, I learned a lot about Dr. pepper. I'd recommend going.

I was surprised at how much this cost ($10 for adults, $6 kids) for a very modest museum about a company. And I was really surprised of the cost once we walked through. A confusing layout, we weren't sure where to start. Saw 7-Up area...More

Waste of time and $10 And workers are not friendly! I love Dr. Pepper but will not come back. Only semi cool thing was the well and liquid laboratory.

Very amazing old Dr Pepper memorabilia. Informative educational history about Dr. Pepper, as well as the history with how it relates to Waco,Tx. See and hear the stories of how the beverage has always been made. You well enjoy the great experience.

I found it a very interesting history of soda pop and Dr Pepper / 7-Up in particular. There was not much there, however, and the $10 price of admission was high. I took a young child and there was NOTHING for him.

Thought there'd be more to see/do. Very small gift shop. Cost to get in... no freebies at end of tour.

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.
