Overview

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.

As a historical museum, it was fine: certainly a nostalgia buff's venue. They covered the fun commercials, the pop culture print ads, bottles over the years, and bottling equipment. It would be a nice touch to add a glass of the product after the tour.More

No. It is in a separate building, which you can access by going into the courtyard where the picnic tables are and turning right instead of left.
