A must see in Waco! Home of Dr. Pepper. This was a great place to take the kids and see how sara is made. Great sampling and gift shop too.

Lots of really cool memorabilia from the Dr. Pepper company. You can even get an old-fashioned fountain drink of this popular beverage.

It was very interesting and informative - there are 3 levels of displays and a gift shop ( wasn't very good ) and the soda stop which I loved - they mix it there for you. It was worth the price

Very nice museum and has all the history of the drink invented in Waco and has a lot to see in memorabilia of the bottles from the past to the present including the well that is still there.

This was an interesting museum, various displays regarding the bottling process, drug store vignettes, and loads of collectables (posters, coolers, bottles, etc.). Enjoy.

This museum is basically a lot of old bottles on display throughout the years. It is 3 levels and kinda boring. It is self guided and unless you like looking at bottles it really is not worth the $8.00 cover charge. I thought that maybe there would be a free drink at the end of the tour but you pay... More

Used a groupon for this. Kids loved the soda fountain. I wanted more of a hands on view of the processes. This museum does not include any manufacturing processes per se.

This is a nice museum to visit if you are in the Waco. We drove about an hour and that is a little too much unless you are going to do something else in the area. It is near Baylor University. We purchased a Groupon that included a 10 oz. drink at the soda fountain. The videos about bottling/canning and... More

If you go to the Dr. Pepper Museum looking for high tech bells and whistles or the experience of a lifetime, you may be disappointed. This museum is what it is---the history of a soft drink. And in that limited role it excels. Here, you will follow the history of the cola and stories about the various presidents of the... More
