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.

Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is a nice experience to see how and where the bottling took place for Dr. Pepper. Not too far from the Interstate, thus you can reach is easily as it is less than a mile off the main road. Interesting old bottling apparatus. Worth a short visit. Travel back toward Baylor University and you will find dozens of place to eat, as well s a drive through of the very expanding Baylor University will be interesting. The new football stadium, under construction,

“Dr. Pepper is the best!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

You will love this fun little museum. See why Dr. Pepper is better than Coke. Stop by on a hot day and enjoy a Dr. Pepper float. It is fun for kids and grownups. Seniors will enjoy too! Good location in downtown Waco, close to restaurants and shopping.

“The King of Beverages”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful place to visit not only to learn the history of Dr Pepper, which is older than Coca-Cola, but also the benefits of a free enterprise system. The museum provides a wonderful journey recounting the development of one of America's favorite soft drinks. Do not miss having a Dr Pepper Ice Cream float.
Well worth the visit.

“Fun little museum”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is an interesting museum. It's not very expensive, and it doesn't take a whole day, but it gives some interesting background on a popular part of American culture. The and mixed sodas from the old fashioned soda shop are delicious.
