This is a nice museum to visit if you are in the Waco. We drove about an hour and that is a little too much unless you are going to do something else in the area. It is near Baylor University. We purchased a Groupon that included a 10 oz. drink at the soda fountain. The videos about bottling/canning and... More

If you go to the Dr. Pepper Museum looking for high tech bells and whistles or the experience of a lifetime, you may be disappointed. This museum is what it is---the history of a soft drink. And in that limited role it excels. Here, you will follow the history of the cola and stories about the various presidents of the... More

If you have kids who can't read on a high school level, be prepared to leave with questions. There is a lot of reading to do, and the layout of the signs still leaves you with question as to what exactly you're looking at. The third floor is kinda bare, 3 things to see. The gift shop has nothing for... More

We went with family to the Museum in May 2015. It wasn't what I was expecting but not bad for the price of $8.00. They have several videos that tell you how it got started and the processing of Dr. Pepper. They also have a real soda fountain where you can get a great tasting Dr. Pepper.

I had hoped for a little more for what it cost to see the museum. We went during the week,so it wasn't very crowded. Cute memorabilia though.

This is a fun place if looking for something to do while in Waco. I love Dr. Pepper so it was a no brainer to me. I would not suggest to come to Waco just to see this but worth a stop if here.

The museum has been in Waco since DR PEPPER was formulated. The building survived the 1953 tornado but has some damage on the building from the tornado. They have a guided tour and you can sample Dr Pepper after the tour at their soda fountain.

We took our oldest grandson to this museum. It was his first ever museum.....and he loved it! He is a Pepper Fan, so was interesting for him..plus us grandparents. Wasn't to excited over the soda fountain. That wasn't all that good, but we enjoyed the atmosphere.

We went for a little spring break day trip. We had fun looking at all the memorabilia from each decade. We especially liked the area where you could sit and watch the old commercials. It was fun to see the old style delivery trucks and the cut outs from the store displays. Fun trip!

I wasn't aware Dr. Pepper began in Waco, Texas. The Museum contains 3 levels of Dr. Pepper related memorabilia and history. Lots of visual and audio presentations which covers historical and also old commercials from the Dr. Pepper vault.
