I visited the Dr Pepper museum in Waco TX for the 4th of July weekend. My sister and niece came with me. We were looking for a nice, simple day trip out of town. I was worried it would be a waste of time. Not to worry, I had a blast! The museum is really unique and I'm really happy... More

We stopped in the soda shop for an afternoon treat. It was worth it! We didn't tour the museum, but I would recommend the soda shop to everyone.

We stopped for this museum on our way to Dallas. The outside looked promising, as did the check in area. We had a groupon and just had to pay $ 8,00 for the two of us. The museum is on three floors. The first floor had a lot of old advertising on display, the second had all kinds of movie... More

Three floors. Quite abit of history. Howver, was hoping this was the building that housed the originalk drug store--but that is a few blocks away. Nice three--D animated narrator telling some of the early story. Enjoyed the historical videos. The advertising videos were abit too long and seemed to not be a "Best of" but more of a "All ads...

Not sure why the cost of admission is so high. Maybe because Texans are proud of everything in Texas and therefore proud enough to get overcharged. Overall, I was a bit disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone. Did not demonstrate how to make the soda or the processing plant. After paying the overpriced admissions, we were not interested... More

Was hoping there would be just a little more to see like the Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta, but still very neat. Really enjoyed seeing / reading about the history behind the plant.

It's a good stop if you're on your way somewhere else. Not worth the one and a half hour drive from Dallas. Perhaps because we were expecting to see some kind of working facility, the collection of items (easily found at antique shops) is just not worth the time. The only interesting thing was learning about and seeing the well.

Found ourselves looking for something to do in Waco and this little museum came to mind. Always wanted to go, so we finally did. Does not flow very well, but has some cool exhibits and lots of interesting information. Enjoyed out time there, and ended up in the sweet shoppe afterwards for a genuine fountain-jerk Dr P and a float.... More

It's okay to go once. People working snack area acted annoyed when we asked for our free sample, we spent $17.00, didn't understand why they advertise and then act annoyed.

Being from Australia it's now nice to now associate Waco with something other than David Koresh and the Branch Dividians. I've always been a fan of Dr Pepper which is hard to find in Australia so we swung in off the freeway not knowing what to expect and ended up having a great time. The sense of history is fabulous...
