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.

This Museum includes a little bit of everything and can be completed in about an hour. It was fun to look at some old ads and some of the manufacturing process.

This was just a fun tour of the old bottling museum and a history of Waco especially of the tornado of 1953. There was all of the old Dr. Pepper bottles, logos and advertisements. And you can get a real soda fountain drink or float.

This museum offers a lot of information and is very well set up. We enjoyed the history of Dr. Pepper and seeing the early machinery. Would recommend this.

This is a great little museum. Not glitzy in any way so may bore younger kids. Perfect for adults who remember a lot of the history. There are some great old machines in here and well kept examples of old bottles and cans. The museum...More

Catdaddy5150,The drinks from our old-fashioned soda fountain are a bit different from what you would get in a can because they are made differently! When sodas are hand-mixed at a fountain, they are often sweeter and less fizzy than what you would normally encounter from...More

This was a neat musuem with Dr Pepper memorabilia. My kiddos liked the Dr Pepper can horses and the old delivery vehicles. The soda fountain was slow and not really worth the $ 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.
