A lot of history on the soda industry in general. Not hands on except a few smelling stations. Very informative, but must read the signs. Best stop is the store and soda jerk station at the end. I may just skip the self guided tour and hang out in the emporium/gift shop. Great to watch them make the drinks the old fashioned way.

Hi Dr Pepper Fan! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your time at the Museum learning about the history of Dr Pepper and the soft drink industry. The soda fountain and gift shop are always a sweet treat before heading out! Please come back and see us again soon!

First, for the reviews that claim they learned nothing or that there was nothing to see, they must have walked around with their eyes closed. The museum is chalked full of exhibits with lots to see and read. The museum takes you from the beginnings of "soda" to the "invention" of Dr. Pepper to how it eventually gained popular and is so well known today. Yes, there is a lot of reading to do, but it's all very interested and lots to look at besides just reading. The price is worth it & you can get a $1 off coupon in the brochure from he visitor's center. What was very disappointing was the "hand made" Dr. Pepper we got at the end. It tasted horrible. We didn't even finish it. It was a combination between flat, water downed and just an odd taste. How can you have the Dr. Pepper museum that has gross Dr. Pepper??? I also got a root beer float and it also tasted bad. We're thinking that either there wasn't enough carbonation or they weren't putting in enough syrup or something, but that was very disappointing.

The drinks from our old-fashioned soda fountain are a bit different from what you would get in a can because they are made differently! When sodas are hand-mixed at a fountain, they are often sweeter and less fizzy than what you would normally encounter from a pre-made Dr Pepper. The different flavor certainly makes our drinks unique! With that said, we are always making improvements to our soda fountain. Thank you for letting us know your drinks were not what you expected. We will do everything we can to make the experience better!

Lots of things to look at. Not a hands on museum. You can get a great root beer float at the end of the tour. Clean, well maintained and interesting.

It’s a pretty neat museum, all the staff were really friendly. Make sure you get a coupon book at the Waco info center for $1 off admission. We took two hours to walk through the history of soda.

Lots of reading and there’s a load of pretty cool memorabilia. Free drink at the end, I got a Big Red, never heard of it until the museum,
