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.

Great history of one of my favorite drinks. Docents are quite knowledgeable of the facility and artifacts and answer any questions you may have.

We spent a fun and relaxing hour enjoying this museum. It is full of interesting history and nostalgia for those of us who grew up drinking Dr. Pepper. And if you can make it through without wanting one from the soda shop at the end, you have superhuman resistance to subliminal messages. :)

Nice little museum. Lots of informative history on soda pop manufacturing and the history behind Dr Pepper itself. Friendly staff and nice gift shop.

Visited with family over the Christmas break. Was expecting a bigger, nicer, more comprehensive history of the unique Texas soft drink, but was somewhat underwhelmed by the displays and overall presentation. Some of the displays were dusty and dirty and some of the wallpanels were missing or torn. The upper floor area with the Big Red and Big Blue displays was weak and the soda fountain was a bigger disappointment. The gift shop was small and didnt have much. Overall was expecting something much bigger and a nicer presentation for a national brand.
