A museum dedicated to the nation's oldest major soft drink - Dr Pepper! We offer three floors of exhibits featuring information about many different soft drinks, as well as a carefully curated selection of our massive soft drink memorabilia collection. Exhibits change regularly! You can visit our soda fountain and gift shop any time without paying admission. Photo ops outside the Museum include a Dr Pepper Green 1940s delivery truck, one of three original neon signs from the Mockingbird Plant in Dallas, and a hand-painted advertising sign original to the site. Of course the front of the Museum building itself is visitors' favorite photo location. We are a two block walk from Magnolia Market and the famous silos, and about half a mile from the newest restaurants including Torchy's Tacos and In-N-Out Burger.

It is interesting to note that Dr. Pepper was originally called Waco since this was where it was developed. There is not a lot to see here. A bit disappointing if you have been to the Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta. Lots of old advetising signs and ads. Old delivery trucks are on display, as are old bottles. There is... More

This building houses a lot of memorabilia on three floors. We did enjoy learning the history and seeing all of the old machinery in the building. The artesian well was also interesting. Did not know how many flavors are all owned by one company and the many changes of ownership. Unless you are wanting to spend a lot of time... More

Interesting museum.... Tells a modest story about company was founded. Interesting soda history artifacts. There are a nice few old cigar boxes, tonic bottles, vintage soda bottles. Tours are self guided. Interactive soda lab is a disappointment. It is a 15 minute basic science clasd for kids on how taste/smell works. Gift shop is "flat". Poor selection of gifts and... More

Very very cool museum of the history of Dr. Pepper. There are bottling machines, vehicles, signs and lots of bottles and memorabilia. We enjoyed watching the commercials they showed. Multiple floors. Lots of colorful displays. Very nice gift shop. We bought some Dr. Pepper plastic glasses with logo. Recommend.

Museum has nothing to do with the Dr. Pepper soda, but is a memorial to the people who marketed Dr. Pepper and associated products. Not worth the price of $10 per person.

I love Dr. Pepper and Texas but was a little underwhelmed by this museum. This was certainly a cool unique little museum but I don't think it was worth the $10 per person to get in. The gift shop/soda shop had some reasonably priced shirts and tasty sweet treat options.

So i went for the tour but you could really do without. The best part was the freshly made dr.pepper such goodness! My advice is to just stop in for some fresh Dr. Pepper. Parking across the street is also free.

Angela, thank you for visiting the museum and taking the time to write a review! We are so glad that you had a great time getting a fresh mixed Dr Pepper here. It's definitely the perfect pit stop while traveling I35. More
