Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

The history of Dr. Pepper was interesting but, the promotion of Big Red & Big Blue was more like a commercial.

Living in Waco I have been to the Dr Pepper Museum several times. Every time I have been I learn something new. The displays were really nice to look at and the history of how Dr Pepper got started is interesting to hear. Make sure to visit the soda shop after your tour, the best frosty's and the original Dr Pepper around.

Fun for all ages. Gives kids a low tech kind of enjoyment- no roller coasters but still fun. It is fun to "mix" your own DP. Also look at the change in bricks that is from the tornado in the 50"s and they had to rebuild.

It was a amazing site. It had a good history background to it. Definitively a great place to visit, even take the kids!

I have been to Waco so many times over the years but this is the first time I went to the museum. I was excited to learn that it was supposedly haunted but didn't see or feel anything unusual. The displays were very nicely done and the frosty's were amazing!
