Interesting place.

This museum is interesting if you are a Dr. Pepper lover. It's fun to see if you are already in the area but not worth a special trip. It's 3 floors of memorabilia and info on... read more

There are 3 floors of memorabilia stemming from the equipment back in the 1800's to the advertising posters & signs. I was hoping to learn more about the process of how Dr Pepper is made, bottled, distributed today but other than a short video telling you the where the syrup is made in TX that was about it for current...

I was surprised at how much of the museum was dedicated to a former leader of the company instead of the company itself. There were some historical items of different kinds dealing with the company, but on the whole this museum was just kind of there instead of being outstanding. As different as Dr. Pepper is from the regular colas,... More

This museum is interesting if you are a Dr. Pepper lover. It's fun to see if you are already in the area but not worth a special trip. It's 3 floors of memorabilia and info on the history. The gift shop has some cool Dr. Pepper items as well.

If you find yourself in Waco, don't miss this fun and kitschy throwback museum. You'll see and hear all the old ads and be compelled to sing along. The history of this gastronomic delight is interesting as well. And don't skip the soda fountain at the end, where you can get a Dr Pepper Black Cow. Yum!

Unless you are with a group of 10 or more, your tour is self-guided. There are three levels to the museum and has an elevator, thank goodness! Very interesting to learn the history of such a wonderful beverage!

I don't drink soda often but when I do it's Dr. Pepper. So I just had to stop in Waco and check this place out. Both my wife and I were very surprised. Great history on Dr. Pepper and it's place in Americana history. The curators have done a great job with this place and it was a very enjoyable... More

The kids weren't as into as the adults, but it's a great add-on if you are in town for something. Try a Dr. Pepper float in the cafe. SOOO good!

Interesting museum about the beginnings of Dr. Pepper. This is not your Coke Museum. No manufacturing or people inside giving you extra information. I feel that the cost is high for what you get.

I love Dr. Pepper, I love nostalgia, I love Waco. I just think this museum's admission price is a little expensive for what it is. It is extremely thorough in its coverage of all things Dr. Pepper, but sometimes to the point that I think some of the displays actually get a little off-topic. But if you are looking for... More
