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.

If you're comparing the Dr. Pepper museum to the Coca Cola museum in Atlanta, you will be disappointed. It was an interesting visit and the tour was self-guided. If you lose interest because you have to read all of the descriptions, this isn't for you....More

I have been to several soda museums (Coke & Sun Drop). For the price there should at least be a free sample of a drink. There isn't much to see. The building is neat and some of the ads in the theater were fin to...More

Very interesting visit. There's a lot of history about the Dr Pepper rand and how it was started. The exhibit with some of the older Pepper commercials is very interesting and entertaining. The Dr Pepper cupcake recipe demo was fun.

Tour was ok but not worth the money spent on it. Won't need to go again and unlike some tours, no free sample.

This was the worst museum I have ever been to and I have been in hundreds of them. Skip the admission fee and just go to the soda fountain for a treat. It was not interesting at all.

10 dollars for Adults, 8 dollars for seniors, and I believe it has a military discount also
Can someone tell me on average how long it would take to walk thru the entire museum? Thanks.

If you're interested in Dr. Pepper history it can easily take you 2 hours or more. There are numerous displays as well as videos of Dr. Pepper commercials from the past.
