Regardless of where you stand on the Coke vs. Pepsi issue, you have to go inside this place if you're walking the town.

A special, historical place, but it's about selling Pepsi. Plain and simple. You can get a large Pepsi soda for $1 at the fountain and sit in the soda fountain area. Not as much memorabilia as I thought there would be.

This little store front was worth the visit just to check the box, but it is now more of a retail outlet for Pepsi Merchandise and less of a museum.

A soda and gift sop with several tables and a limited Pepsi menu. GREAT to stop in on a 90 degree summer day to cool off in the AC, get an ice cold diet Pepsi at Pepsi's birthplace. Not many other shops nearby selling cold drinks so a great stop. Souvenirs are cute: logo mugs, sweats, T shirts etc. Rest rooms available too.

The title pretty much says it all, but it is a gift shop with a large selection of items from the Pepsi brands family, so it you're a fan, this is your spot. It's worth a stop, but be sure to explore the other interesting shops and restaurants in New Bern's charming downtown.
