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

Enjoy all the facts thru out the last century. How a recipe can change a world; a person and a community.

Had two 11 year olds in tow and they enjoyed it - but mainly because this older fellow could explain things of interest. It's self guided and you really need to plan on doing a good bit of reading and explaining if you have young ones. And why not a free Dr Pepper at the end??? Small fountain Dr Pepper... More

Museum was rather small, but full of Dr. Pepper history. Not a museum that one spends a lot of time in, if you know what I mean. It is one of those fill in spots to see on a family vacation. Hours of operation are rather limited, so check website to make sure they are open when you expect to... More

This is a small and quaint but interesting and informative museum. It is self guided with multiple floors of memorabilia. One of the highlights is the original well where the water came from. The best part is the old-fashioned soda fountain, where you can get Dr. Pepper floats and other similar drinks.

Lots of nostalgia in this lovely museum for those of us who grew up drinking Dr. Pepper. Watching videos of the old tv ads was a real hoot. Interesting displays. Well organized. Be sure and visit the soda shop for an old-time treat!

Enjoyed our visit here. Dr Pepper is not that easy to obtain in Australia so didn't know much about it (thought it was a cola, it isn't) three levels of exhibits with an impressive array of memorabilia. Was great to be able to buy a Dr Pepper at the end but would have preferred it to be with real sugar... More

If you are a fan of Dr. Pepper, then the museum is fun. Lots of memorabilia is around and the old commercials are fun. My kids were bored and could care less, except for the soda jerk. Having a fresh made Dr. Pepper was the highlight for them. Not much else they really enjoyed. I think the adults in the... More
