The family had nothing to do so we decided to visit the museum. We didn't expect much and weren't disappointed. The biggest highlight was the soda fountain! They make soda like in the old days.

Visited museum (3 floors) and found it far less than expected. Could choose to watch commercials from different generations but something was wrong with sound and all one heard was scratching noise so loud it gave me a headache. Absolutely nothing that would interest young children although they did have some Legos for them to play with. Lots of movie... More

This could be a great attraction, but it looks and feels like it was put together on the cheap by someone with no knowledge of how to create an interesting museum. The exhibitions are all second rate and it's like a school project more than a museum you would pay for, which is a shame as Dr pepper has an... More

Stopped by on a trip from Houston to Dallas. A bit expensive for what it was ($8 per person). Self guided, started well, the old shop then bottling room was neat, then the upper floors were very weak. Stopped by the soda shop, overpriced as well ($1 extra for the "souvenir" cheapo stadium cup!?). Drinks were tasty and old-timey, but... More

My wife and I were early arrivals on a Friday afternoon and Hotel Indigo wasn't quite ready for us to check in. Dr. Pepper Museum is only about 5 blocks away, and sounded like fun. Reasonably priced at $8 per person (they give game day discounts with ticket stubs) we stepped into a time machine. Fascinating reminiscing with old jingles... More

While in Waco, this is a place that you may want to visit; especially if your childhood consisted of Dr Pepper or even now that you're an adult and you enjoy Dr Pepper, you will enjoy this museum. I went on a day where there many events going on. On this day, the entry fee was free, so that was... More

Our family visited on a Saturday, and found this an interesting way to spend a couple of hours. Interesting history of the best soda in the world. Lots of pictures of how it evolved and how it is made.

While this museum is not for everyone, it is interesting. It is a wonderful trip down memory lane. On display you will find examples of the first bottles that held carbonated drinks. See a display of a bottling machine, an artisan well, many dispensing machines and a working soda fountain. The gift shop is small but has an interesting variety... More
