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.

Worth the stop

Very enjoyable - a nice mix of displays and films - including watching old commercials. We spent about 2 hours here.

What a disappointment! For $10 you get to look at dozens of displays that look like they were first installed in the 1970s. There's no consistent theme or timeline as you move from room to room and they get quite repetitive at times (and don't get me going on the many typos!). You have to be a die hard Dr.... More

We stopped here to avoid the crowd at magnolia market and it was a good decision! It was not crowded at all and we skipped the crowed by minutes. The floats are to die for!!!

This was a fun and educational stop for us on a short weekend day trip to Waco. The museum is full of history. I loved seeing the hall of CEOS and the other beverages Dr. PEpperson was associated throughout the years. Plus the gift store had Dr. Pepper made with real sugar.

My husbands family managed a bottling company in Texas and the family has a lot of Dr Pepper relics. It was very interesting to visit and see everything.

We stopped by this attraction because my mother is a huge DP fan. Little did we know what a learning adventure it would end up to be. They have a scavenger hunt that keeps the little people involved as you trek through the museum and helps the adventure become a "learning experience" Ha! They have a DP lab that was... More

My sister and I used to babysit for the summer. Our next door neighbor at times did not have enough money to pay us in cash, so she would give us Dr.. Pepper and a bar of candy. We both were very happy with that. Years later when I took my nephews to visit the Dr Pepper museum and told... More

We visited this museum back in July of 2016. We enjoyed the atmosphere and learning about Dr. Pepper and how it all originated. Little ones will really enjoy this museum. Missed the tasting stand though.

Missed this the last time we were in Waco, so made it a point to visit. The displays show the history of Dr. Pepper the drink, as well as the company. Also interesting to read about the history of Waco, the artesian wells and the devastating tornado that destroyed much of the downtown area.

I thought it was a very good museum, well worth my hour and half time it took me to go thru it. If you wanted to look at everything really close you could spend every more time in there. I never would have thought Dr Pepper would be older then Coke. Would consider going again next time in town.

Thank Dan W
