This is not much more than a store that sells Pepsi related merchandise. No big deal, see it if you are nearby but dont go out of your way unless you are a Pepsi fanatic.

Visited the "store" with wife and two granddaughters. Not much except a souvenir stand with bottled drinks available. Clerks did not seem very interested in promoting the historic significance of the place.

Worth a stop to see how it was created, especially interesting to folks who like Pepsi or those in the pharmacy field.

Cute little store with old fashion bar area. Pepsi Float was refreshing. Good info about the history of Pepsi. It's self guided but the people working there can answer any questions.

It is just a shop and cafe. That just happens to be the first one.
A plaque an fair few interesting bits to see but that is all.
If you are passing worth a stop and a photo but don't go too far out of your way unless you are a true fan.
There is an interesting outdoor chapel across the road too.
