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

Having not grown up with Dr Peppers learnt a lot about it. Loved all the old advertising and memorabilia. The section on sales was interesting too. Enjoyed my ice cream float in the soda fountain. Gift shop could be better with more choice.

The adults were thrilled with the amount of memorabilia to see and explore here, but it was a bit pricey for kids since it's really geared towards adults.

If you are in town for a Baylor game, make sure you plan time for a trip to the Dr. Pepper Museum. It is really interesting to learn about the soda history and process. There is nothing better than a Dr. Pepper float in an old timey setting.

Dr. Pepper used to advertise as a 10-2-4 refreshment option - a dear friend religiously observed the 2pm DP slot daily with a juice glass serving until he passed away at 92. If you find yourself passing through Waco, even with limited time to spare, take the 4th-5th Street exit just a couple blocks west of I-35 and stop by.... More

This self-guided tour was less than I expected. The people working there were really not very helpful, and nowhere to be found most of the time. We bought some things in the gift shop, and the cashier showed up after we were waiting at the counter for a minuet or so. The guy working in the soda fountain didn't say... More

It was interesting. It took about an hour and a half or so to go through and read most of the captions. The family pride of the Dr Pepper company people was very evident throughout. $6 admission for Seniors. Some hands-on exhibits for kids. The scavenger hunt sheet was a good way to focus on the exhibits and gave hints... More

This was our second visit, this time with family. To start, I've been drinking Dr. Pepper since 1980 as a child and the history of this museum makes it even better. Our first visit, about 6 mos or so ago, was re-arranged this visit with some new exhibits, one that highlighted product placement of Dr. Pepper and variety of other... More
