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

We enjoyed our visit to the Dr.Pepper museum. Cool trivia..loved the life like talking druggist. Watching all the commercials from long ago was very entertaining. It is worth the trip. Neat drugstore fountain where you can get Dr.Pepper or whatever else you might want. I do think the sample size of Dr. Pepper should be free, however.

This is a great museum. It is actually 3 stories but the did have elevators for those who could not climb the stairs. It was very interesting to see all the old equipment for the 1890's they used to make Dr. Pepper as well as to see the office of the man who made it all happen. Of course the... More

First question I always get, it is worth it? ABSOLUTELY. The displays are very well done. The memorabilia is truly amazing. They do have an old school soda fountain on site in a diner setting. We watched a couple history movies and took about 1 1/2 hours to go thru.

It's summer time in Texas! My kids and I were looking for a fun day trip. We drove to Waco to the Dr Pepper Museum. It was our first time. We did not know what to expect. It was well worth the trip. It is easy to get to from 35W. You park across the street in free public parking... More
