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.

Worth the stop to break up the trip. Interesting history for Dr. Pepper lovers. We would recommend for families with kids. Great soda fountain.

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

Liked some of the stories. Not a lot for the $8 admittance. Gift shop was very tiny. Not a lot to choose from. Seems to need some help with up keep. Maybe I feel that way as the 3rd floor airconditioning was out.. Soda fountain is good but a bit small and pricey. It wasn't what I expected.

For what you see, it is a little pricey, look for coupons. There is a ton of history there. For me, as a big DP fan, I was disappointed that there wasn't a better supply of souveniors (not really interested in $20 t-shirts that have dust on them). I would have enjoyed bringing home something to my other DP addicts.... More

We had a groupon for $16 for a family 4. Had we paid full price, I would have felt ripped off. There's not a lot to the museum - an old fashioned soda fountain set-up in the first room and a mechanical man telling you about the history, then a room showing all of the factory equipment, then upstairs to...

Take a trip back in time to see Dr. Pepper through the years. See how lifestyles changed through the decades along with how Dr. Pepper was a part of the American culture. Fun for the whole family. When we were there a local school brought their students for a tour of the museum. Having fun while learning about local and... More
