We went to Waco for another attraction and had some time to kill and ended up at the Dr Pepper Museum. We are glad we did. We spent more time here than any other place. How informative and fascinating. Worth the time.

We enjoyed our visit. It was very comprehensive, historical and fun. Would have spent more time but young kids go through museums quickly.
