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.

The Dr. Pepper museum was a great visit while in town. I was surprised by the history of DP, a great quote from DP Success story of the Golden Rule, and some History of Cola.

Enjoyed the unique layout of displays and the unknown history of the Dr. Pepper brand. Good family time of a casual walk through of the museum.

Be sure to tour two buildings. Only saw one as no one informed us to visit the other building. Not worth the price of admission for only one building.

The Dr Pepper Museum was a worthwhile place to visit. It afforded you to learn its roots and what brought it to this point.

Not that interesting or exciting. Some of the information was pleasant to read, but there wasn’t much to get your attention for adults. Little tykes can play with several displays. For what we paid ($10 adult), it would have been nice to have a sample...More

There is no tour, you are self-guided. An hour at most should do it.
