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.

This was a very nice museum. Had a lot of history about Dr. Pepper and old advertising from the past. Brings back many childhood memories.It is well worth a visit.

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

I was excited to see this place even though I'm not a fan of Dr. Pepper...yes, I have tried it and just can't get use to the taste...sorry, Dr. Pepper. Anyway, it was very interesting and they had the most interesting display you can ever imagine. I highly recommend this place.

learned some new things about dr. pepper, although I forget the year they dropped the "period" after "Dr". We purchased tix with groupon that was essentially half off. With that price, museum is a good deal for the money, not completely sure if full price. kids (9 of them) were generally interested. little kids obviously found certain sections boring, but... More

Looking for something to do on our one-day stopover in Waco, we spent a pleasant two hours at the Dr. Pepper Museum. If you're not interested in Dr. Pepper, or how soft drinks started and matured in the U.S. market, keep looking for other things to do. We found the story of Dr. Pepper, specifically, and soft drinks, generally, quite... More

My husband and I enjoyed the museum very much but our small children were quite bored. They however loved the ice cream float we bought at the end. Spent barely 30 mins at the museum and the kids were ready to GO.
