Sure was neat watching our soda being served the old fashion way. Reading the history of soda and Dr. Pepper was enlightening.

I have been a big fan of Dr Pepper for a long time, and this was on my bucket list of things to do. I finally got the opportunity to check it out and really enjoyed it! It's easy to get to, I had no problems finding parking. The building is not too big so you can take your time... More

No, it is not as slick as the World of Coke, and you don't get to try hundreds of different drinks from a computerized dispenser, but this is more real. It is also less crowded and more reasonably priced, and nearby parking is free. It is in an old and original three floor building, with elevator access to the upper... More

We took two senior citizens to the museum and had a really good time! The museum has 3 floors, and there are elevators going up. I noticed there are also two wheelchairs for guests to use. Of course this museum is full of nostalgia and there is lots of history to learn. There are 2 places with seating to watch... More

My grandchildren did not take in the full history of Dr Pepper but were fascinated with everything they saw. Of course, the soda fountain was a favorite!

Nice place to spend an hour. We lucked out and were in when there was about ten other people in the whole building. Lots of memorabilia to see from old bottles to advertisements. Not very big but it is interesting. Best part was the soda jerk counter at the front. Lots of stuff to try but could be costly if... More

I like Dr Pepper. I drink it. I look at it. I bathe in it. Scratch that last one, but I do like DP a lot. On our way through Waco, we had the choice of hitting the Dr Pepper museum or the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame. This trip we picked Dr. Pepper. Perhaps it was the fact that... More

Kids will love it, adults as well. Was interesting and I would go back. The soda shop is fun and a great treat. A little expensive but well worth it.

I'm a big history buff and Dr Pepper fan so this was a fun visit. If you go to the Dr Pepper museum website there is a coupon for a dollar off admission. I learned some things I didn't know so it was worth the visit. Also, the gift shop has Dr Pepper in cans and bottles that are sweetened... More
