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's a real treat to see how a product that has endured the test of time was started. Very interesting and informative. Only wish that the current bottling facilty was open for public tours. Visit is time well spent.

Enjoyed learning interesting and fun facts about a long-time favorite soda.(actually we call them ALL "cokes" 😉) Loved learning the history and about the folks behind it. The new building addition is really nice and we enjoyed the science demonstration presented by Stephanie. Glad we had a chance to see it!

If you like history this is a neat place! My husband and I enjoyed the information about the tornado that hit Waco and the progression and history of Dr Pepper was very interesting. Our teenage girls found it to be somewhat boring but that was expected.

We went here only because it was close to Magnolia Market and it was within walking distance. It had a lot of history and memorabilia, probably more than I was really interested in. Wouldn't make this a destination itself, but worth a walk through. Would have liked a free little sample at the end 😀

A very interesting history of the manufacturing of Dr Pepper along with some of the older antique machines used on the process.

First - check on Groupon for deals!! Instead of paying $10 a person we paid $3-4 a person. I personally wouldn't pay full price but for what we did pay felt more than satisfied. It has a little something for everyone in the family! If you have some free time, want to get out of the heat, and have a... More

This was a cute museum! We visited on a Sunday afternoon and had a nice time looking in all the rooms and learning about one of Texas' favorite drinks. There was a lot of cool vintage Dr. Pepper items on display & a lot of interesting history about Waco & its' connection to Dr. Pepper (first invented & produced there).... More

We visited the museum on a Sunday in August. It wasn't too busy. We had a double long stroller and were able to get around fairly easily. The price, $10, is a little high. $7 feels like more of a fair price. The museum is split into two parts. The old part is where you pay for the exhibits. The... More
