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.

I LOVE DR. PEPPER, but i love my money even more. There were interesting things to see and experience, just not enough to justify the admission prices..in my opinion.

Not really worth the $10 ticket to go inside the museum. It seemed kind of haphazard and unorganized. A bit like a middle school kids homework assignment. Save your $10 and head next door to the soda shoppe for an ice cream float and gift...More

This is a must stop for anyone visiting Waco, Texas. Dr. Pepper was developed right in Waco, and the beverage was called "WACO" prior to being named Dr. Pepper. Our group were very interested in the stories of the tornado that passed through Waco years...More

The museum offers lots of information about the history of Dr Pepper from the ingredients used to make the soda to how it was bottled. Lots of bottles and vending machines to view. Visit Frosty's for an ice cream soda!

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.
