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.

Learned the history behind Dr. Pepper. Check Groupon before buying your ticket. Not everything in the museum is Dr. Pepper themed. There are also Waco historical facts.

The Dr Pepper museum was a nice stop on our drive from Fort Worth to San Antonio. Perfectly placed at our first break. The directions were spot on and the parking was free. The museum is small, but we were not looking to spend a whole day, just an hour or so. There was a little shop at the end,... More

Loved the concept of the museum and we did learn a lot about the product but it seemed dated and overpriced. I'm glad we stopped by but can't justify the price. Also the signage around the facility is horrible! So many folks walking around, unsure about what door to use. Please add some signs outside, we were all so frustrated... More

We enjoyed watching the old commercials. The exhibits bring back many memories . The old history of the company an all the many products they have made millions have enjoyed.

We were surprised to learn Dr Pepper had started in WACO so having grown up with the pepper commercials, we had to tour the museum. It was a lot of fun to see all the old exhibits and my 11 year old loved having his first Dr Pepper next door at their shop. Worth a visit if you are in... More

I'm not sure this museum knows what it wants to be. Is it a collection of commercials you can watch on YouTube​? Is it full of old bottles? Is it run down? Is it full of right wing statements on free enterprise? Yes, but it really didn't tell a story.

Being from Waco, I take a deep pride of Dr Pepper. This place is pricey but worth it if you love Dr Pepper. From the museum and the gift shop, its worth the money.

It's an older museum so it's not as interesting as it could be wi th out a lot of the interactive stuff is by today's standards. I enjoyed reading about Dr Pepper but I left having questions as they did not have employees around who could answer questions. There was info about 7 up and I would have liked more... More

Visited with family (3 kids -10, 13, 16). Museum is 2-3 blocks from the very popular Magnolia Market so if you're there, walk on over to hear all about Dr Pepper. Fee to get in was a little more than you'd want to pay ($10/adult, $7/student, I think). There's 2 bldgs, one an original structure from the 1930's and a... More

Needed something to make it a little less boring. Some music, or something. There were some neat displays, but some of the interactive video screens did not work. The courtyard seemed more like something from a moving that involved a prison yard. The soda fountain experience could have been fun, but the workers seemed bored.
