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.

Interesting (if not a bit self promoting) to visit to see the old town and how the brand grew. I think on a hot day they could give you a nice cold one as you leave to the price of admission!

We visited the museum and expected the tour to take 15-20 minutes. There are some great pieces of memorabilia to see here. Expect a bit of a wait when you order drinks or snacks (upwards of 20 minutes).

A fun way to look back at Waco and Dr. Pepper history. Well presented, interesting displays. The theater with old Dr. Pepper commercials was a hoot! All ages enjoyed the time spent.

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.
