Old commercials were great! I don't remember the dancing guy. Loved the different displays. Old bottling info was interesting.

It great how they kept the history of DrPepper and how it was invented. They even have the original well uncovered that Is spring feed.

I wish there had been more to see in this little museum but it was really cool. It was very interesting but the best part was getting a fresh dr pepper from the soda fountain. I got the dr pepper float and it was heaven!

The Dr Pepper Museum is a fun spot, especially if you grew up on Dr Pepper. The history of the product, the building, and the advertising are all covered in the museum. The gift shop and snack areas were not as nice on my visit...More
