Interesting museum about the beginnings of Dr. Pepper. This is not your Coke Museum. No manufacturing or people inside giving you extra information. I feel that the cost is high for what you get.

I love Dr. Pepper, I love nostalgia, I love Waco. I just think this museum's admission price is a little expensive for what it is. It is extremely thorough in its coverage of all things Dr. Pepper, but sometimes to the point that I think some of the displays actually get a little off-topic. But if you are looking for... More

Went one Saturday and the soda machine would not work due to frozen pipes so went back in Summer Just so we could complete our experience and have a real dr pepper float with hand made soda from the fountain. It is an old place, not glamorous. If you go in realizing this and appreciate yesteryear and read all the... More

i really wanted to like this place. I enjoy historic museums like this one, however there were not many people - even for a Sunday - and the place seemed fairly sleepy. Mildly imformative about the history of the beverage - whick I grew up on - however not much energy. Saw it once but have no desire to return.

Lots of cool old Dr. Pepper displays, very retro. There's also a great little soda fountain where they make old fashioned Dr. Peppers with soda water and a nice little gift shop. There's also a part of the museum that's set up so you can watch old Dr. Pepper commercials. It was a neat experience.

I love Dr. Pepper so it was interesting to see how it came to be. The museum had a lot of information and even a place to buy the original dr. pepper before you leave. If you have smaller kids they might get a bit bored, but for adults, its interesting and fun.

Interesting look at the history of Dr. Pepper and "Mr. Dr. Pepper" W.W. Clements contributions to the industry which include the current museum building and the Clements Free Enterprise Institute. Housed in a refurnished 100 year old building, the museum has several places for cute photo ops as well as an amazing display of antique bottling glass. End of tour... More

We happened to arrive as one of the staff was giving a tour so we tagged a long. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job of interacting with the people especially the smaller children. My Neice said we need to keep this on the tour for future family that visits and they can't wait to come... More

You must go to the museum to find out what that means. Nicely done building and doesn't take a long time commitment to enjoy it.

If you have younger kids, I would not suggest going to the museum. They have a shop at no cost where you can purchase Floats, Dr. Pepper and Moonpies. The adults in the family found it very interesting. Great exhibits explain the history of Dr. Pepper from beginning to end. The section with Advertisements and movie placements was nice.
